From the preface: In this second edition [for a review of the first edition (1991), see Zbl 0724.62003], I have attempted to expand the treatment of many of the techniques discussed, as well as included important topics such as the Metropolis algorithm and methods for assessing the convergence of Markov chain algorithms.
