Introduction: Purpose and Scope of this Volume, and Some General Comments

Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 80)


In recent years the method of “computer simulation” has started something like a revolution of science: the old division of physics (as well as chemistry, biology, etc.) into “experimental” and “theoretical” branches is no longer really complete. Rather, “computer simulation” has become a third branch complementary to the first two traditional approaches.
