Understanding Molecular Simulation: From Algorithms to Applications, second edition

Daan Frenkel and Berend Smit

From the Preface: "The book is aimed at readers who are active in computer simulation, or are planning to become so. Computer simulators are continuously confronted with questions concerning the choice of technique, because there is a bewildering variety of computational tools available. We believe that, in order to make a rational choice, a good understanding of the physics behind each technique is essential. Our aim is to provide the reader with this background."
