Abstract

This paper contains an introduction to Monte Carlo simulations for systems defined by their probability to be in a given configuration. Examples of such systems are lattice models in statistical mechanics and quantum field theories in Euclidean time. The emphasis is on the algorithms used in simulating quantum chromodynamics (QCD). The fermion problem for quantum field theories is described, and then the application of Monte Carlo simulation to QCD is briefly described.
