Grain growth and grain boundary segregation in binary alloys: A MonteCarlo simulation
The authors have presented a MonteCarlo simulation of grain growth and solute segregation on the grain boundaries (GBs) in binary alloys. A thermodynamic approach of the simulation algorithm has been given. The preliminary simulation of a simplified binary system indicates that pronounced solute segregation on the GBs is achieved, characterized by linearly increasing solute concentration on the GBs and significant spatial correlation of the solute distribution. The authors observe the normal grain growth in the present system by demonstrating the scaling behavior of its size distribution although the kinetics is seriously slowed down, exhibiting an exponent much lower than themore » 
Effects of domain, grain, and magnetic anisotropy distributions on magnetic permeability: MonteCarlo approach
Existing approaches for prediction of the tensor permeability of polycrystalline ferrites may not provide reasonable estimates of demagnetized permeability below the spin resonance (i.e., lowfield loss region) or in cases of partial magnetization. We propose an approach which solves the coupled LandauLifshitzGilbert equation for the dynamic magnetic fields including the minimization of free energy to determine the equilibrium magnetization direction. Unlike previous models, we employ a MonteCarlo approach to easily calculate the (ensemble) averages of permeability over various domain/grain structures and magnetic anisotropy conditions. Material differences, such as those resulting from different preparation methods, are expressed by using probability densitymore » 
Monte Carlo and analytical modeling of the effects of grain boundaries on diffusion kinetics
The authors examine quantitatively the impact of a grain boundary on the kinetics of diffusion in a concentrated lattice gas. In the model the lattice gas particles move via Kawasaki dynamics on the sites of a simple cubic lattice in which a highdiffusivity slab (i.e., grain boundary) has been embedded. Their motion is constrained such that multiple occupancy of a site is forbidden. By examining various subsets of particles, it is found that a temporal bias exists and can be explained in terms of approximate rate equations which embody the dynamical inhomogeneity of the system. It is observed that particlesmore » 
Threedimensional, offlattice MonteCarlo kinetics simulations of interstellar grain chemistry and ice structure
The first offlattice Monte Carlo kinetics model of interstellar dust grain surface chemistry is presented. The positions of all surface particles are determined explicitly, according to the local potential minima resulting from the pairwise interactions of contiguous atoms and molecules, rather than by a predefined lattice structure. The model is capable of simulating chemical kinetics on any arbitrary dust grain morphology, as determined by the userdefined positions of each individual dust grain atom. A simple method is devised for the determination of the most likely diffusion pathways and their associated energy barriers for surface species. The model is applied tomore »
