D. Frenkel and B. Smit, Understanding Molecular Simulations: from Algorithms to Applications. (Academic Press, San Diego, 1996).


"... this book brilliantly lays down the scientific foundations of the simulational approach ..." Prof. Kurt Binder in Physics World, 1997

"... a treasure. The book is a marvellous mix of just enough formalism with an informal and readable style, sufficient detail to understand methodological advances, appropriate mathematics ..." Prof. Mark A. Ratner in Physics Today, 1997
