The focus of our group is to simulate solid state Physics which seeks to establish generalized
descriptions of materials properties, by observing specific atomic crystal formations, which can
undergo phase transitions from a variety of factors, such as temperature or pressure. In our specific
laboratory we sought to simulate various material properties, that are stochastic in nature, by
using the Markov Chain Monte Carlo method of analysis. Simply put, we incrementally changed
our observed system until it matches the energy or other factors in a process we would see occur
in nature naturally. Utilizing the law of large numbers, we seek culminate our results and create
accurate models of solid state phenomena.
