3. A Matter of Disorder : Monte Carlo Simulations of Phase Transitions in Strongly Disordered Systems
Sammanfattning : Phase transitions and their critical scaling properties, especially in systems with disorder, are important both for our theoretical understanding of our environment, but also for their practical use in applications and materials in our everyday life. This thesis presents results from finite size scaling analysis of critical phenomena in systems with disorder, using high-precision Monte Carlo simulations and state of the art numerical methods.
