The histogram reweighting technique for Monte Carlo simulations was developed by Ferrenberg and Swendsen for the canonical ensemble (Ref. 1 and 2). With only a few simulations the entire vapor–liquid coexistence region of a pure fluid can be investigated.
In the grand-canonical ensemble
For the grand canonical ensemble see Refs. 3 and 4.
In the isothermal-isobaric ensemble
For the isothermal-isobaric ensemble see Ref. 5.
