Abstract

Choosing from the plenitude of recent Monte Carlo simulations of Ising models, results on dilute systems and metamagnets are presented. In general, good Monte Carlo work may require highly accurate data, careful analyses of a variety of aspects, including finite size effects, and comparison to suitable analytic theories and experiments. Depending on the type of problem, it is shown that one or the other of these points may deserve special care.
