- Weighted histogram analysis on monte carlo simulations

Hey all

I implemented WHAM to analyze my monte carlo simulations but I am always suspicious that it's not working properly. It gives results that makes sense most of the time but not always. The problem is that all I used is the original paper by Ferrenberg and Swendsen . I have no way of testing if my implementation has bugs.

What I'm asking is if there is a good source on the subject, a book on numerical methods that covers WHAM, maybe. Or maybe just a fool proof system that everyone knows what the results should look like for density of state and free energy based on specific pseudo random gaussians.
