Over ?fteen years ago because of the tremendous increase in the power and utility of computer simulations The University of Georgia formed the ?rst institutional unit devoted to the use of simulations in research and teaching: The Center for Simulational Physics. As the international simulations c- munityexpandedfurther wesensedaneedforameetingplaceforbothex- riencedsimulatorsandneophytestodiscussnewtechniquesandrecentresults in an environment which promoted lively discussion. As a consequence the Center for Simulational Physics established an annual workshop on Recent DevelopmentsinComputerSimulationStudiesinCondensedMatterPhysics. This year's workshop was the seventeenth in this series and the continued interest shown by the scienti?c community demonstrates quite clearly the useful purpose that these meetings have served. The latest workshop was held at The University of Georgia February 16-20 2004 and these proce- ings provide a "status report" on a number of important topics. This volume is published with the goal of timely dissemination of the material to a wider audience. We wish to o?er a special thanks to IBM and to SGI for partial support of this year's workshop. This volume contains both invited papers and contributed presentations on problems in both classical and quantum condensed matter physics. We hope that each reader will bene?t from specialized results as well as pro?t from exposure to new algorithms methods of analysis and conceptual dev- opments.

David P. Landau received a BA in Physics from Princeton University in 1963 and a Ph.D. in experimental Physics from Yale University in 1967. After doing postdoctoral research at the CNRS in Grenoble France and teaching at Yale for a year he moved to the University of Georgia where he initiated a research program of Monte Carlo studies in statistical physics. He is currently the Distinguished Research Professor of Physics and founding Director of the Center for Simulational Physics at the University of Georgia. He has been teaching graduate courses in computer simulations since 1982. He has authored/co-authored more than 370 research publications and edited/co-edited more than 20 books. David Landau is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a past Chair of the Division of Computational Physics of the APS. He received the Jesse W. Beams award from SESAPS as well as Humboldt Fellowship and Humboldt Senior US Scientist awards. The University of Georgia named him a Senior Teaching Fellow in 1993. In 1998 he also became Adjunct Professor at the Helsinki University of Technology. In 1999 he was named a Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. In 2002 he received the Aneesur Rahman Prize for Computational Physics from the APS and in 2003 the Lamar Dodd Award for Creative Research from the University of Georgia. In 2005 he became the Senior Guanbiao Distinguished Professor (Visiting) at Zhejiang U. in China. In 2007 he received the Nicholson Medal for Human Outreach from the APS. He is currently a Principal Editor for the journal Computer Physics Communications. S.P. Lewis was a radio news reporter in 1987 when she first met Grace MacInnis. She was so impressed that she went back for another visit and another. During the last few years of MacInnis's life the two women spent many a long afternoon together while Lewis worked on this book. Lewis was born and raised in New York City and travelled extensively before settling in Vancouver in 1970. From then until 1992 she produced programs for CBC CFUN and CKNW radio and wrote and edited articles for the "Vancouver Sun" the "Globe and Mail" "Maclean's" and other publications. In 1989 she founded the Environment News Service (ENS) which now has more than 100 correspondents throughout the world. She makes her home in Honolulu.
