Thus practical experience in teaching Monte Carlo methods to students was a major factor in determining the content of this book. It has been our experience that background knowledge of a programming language such as PASCAL can always be assumed, as well as some knowledge of statistical mechanics, including the basic principle of phase transitions. , he can easily find various texts where these concepts are described clearly (we refer to some of these in this book). Thus there is no need to repeat these basic concepts.

We define one Monte Carlo step (MCS) per site by carrying out the above (5 or 6) steps once for every lattice site, if the spins are selected consecutively. If we select them at random, the MCS/site is defined by requiring that on the average each spin is selected once. It is then advisable to perform step 6 (or time-consuming parts thereof) only once every MCS/site or even only once every τth MCS/site, where τ is some typical correlation time (which will be considered below). ) initial configuration already have a distribution close to Peq(x).
