Monte Carlo Simulations of Spin Models

Parallel computers have been very successfully applied to the Monte Carlo simulation of spin models. Here we present an overview of the Potts spin models and then outline two different methods, Metropolis and cluster algorithms, that can be applied for Monte Carlo simulation of many spin models including Potts models.
