** Next:** Homework
**Up:** Off-lattice Monte-Carlo Simulations. Lennard-Jones
** Previous:** Detailed balance

- 1.
- Cutting-off the Lennard-Jones potential
leads to:
- no error in pressure
- more positive pressure
- less positive pressure

- 2.
- Would the following modifications of the MC
algorithm described in this lecture still satisfy
the detailed balance? Why?
- (a)
- We try to move the odd numbered particles twice as frequent as the odd particles.
- (b)
- The maximum allowed displacement along
*x*is three times larger, than along*y* - (c)
- Only displacements in positive
*x*or*y*directions are allowed.
