Introduction

For more than 20 years classical spin dynamics simulational methods have proven to be a very useful tool to examine the temperature dependent magnetic properties of microscopic and mesoscopic spin arrangements. With the help of these techniques one is immediately able to calculate a wide variety of important experimentally accessible thermodynamic properties for all kinds of magnetic structures though only within a classical picture. Nevertheless, as long as a full quantum mechanically treatment is not available these calculations represent the only way to achieve any insight into the underlying physics for large structures (as an example look at this movie of 8000 spins in a simple cubic lattice).
