AbstractIn this work we successfully applied diverse computational techniques to calculate important quantities in one problem in Statistical Mechanics: the hard disk system in two dimensions. We calculated the global and local orientation order and the time decay constant of the global orientation correlation function. We also computed the Voronoi construction to visuallize the spatial distribution of the local orientation order.
