In one source, this textbook provides quick and comprehensive access to quantitative calculations in materials science. The authors address both newcomers as well as researchers who would like to become familiar with QMC in order to apply to their research. As such, they cover the basic theory required for applying the method, and describe how to transfer this knowledge into calculation. The book includes a series of problems of increasing difficulty with associated stand-alone programs which will be available for free download.
