This volume contains lectures on the basic theory and applications of quantum Monte Carlo methods, with contributions written by authorities in the field. Although tutorial in nature, it includes late-20th century developments. Both continuum systems and lattice models are covered. The applications include atomic, molecular, and solid state physics, statistical and low-temperature physics, and nuclear structure.
