This book contains articles corresponding to the lectures delivered at the ISPRA Course, 21-25 May 1984, organised by the Joint Research Centre of the CEC in cooperation with the University of Trento. The methods described consist mainly of Monte Carlo sampling of configuration space of many particle systems, molecular dynamics simulation of model substances, and the numerical solution of the equations describing continuous models. Applications include: computer studies in the statistical thermodynamics of crystalline and amorphous solids (polymorphic transformation in crystals, nucleation and precipitation in alloys, segregation at boundaries, "defects" in amorphous structures, and surface properties); Computer simulation of defects and diffusion in crystals (bulk diffusion, surface diffusion, and grain boundary diffusion); Computer simulation of radiation effects (swelling, creep, and amorphization); Computer simulation of the dynamics of extended defects (dislocating climbing, fracture, and shock wave compaction), and: Numerical studies on macroscopic models (heat and particle fluxes during irradiation, radiation creep and thermal creep using rate theory, and phase stability under irradiation).
