Title: A Monte Carlo Algorithm to Calculate Density of States: Wang-Landau Sampling
Speaker: Rajeev Kapri
Abstract: I will discuss the Wang-Landau Monte Carlo algorithm which estimates the density of states for classical statistical models via a random walk algorithm which produces a flat histogram.
