This article is a tutorial on Markov chain Monte Carlo simulations and their statistical analysis. The theoretical concepts are illustrated through many numerical assignments from the author's book on the subject. Computer code (in Fortran) is available for all subjects covered and can be downloaded from the web.


... One of the most well-known generalized-ensemble algorithms is perhaps the multicanonical algorithm (MUCA) [42,43] (for reviews see, e.g., Refs. [44,45]). The method is also referred to as entropic sampling [46,47] and adaptive umbrella sampling [48] of the potential energy [49]. ...
