 This book is the Proceedings of The Fields Institute Conference/NATO Advanced Research Workshop held in June 1993. The articles review the diverse recent progress in the theory and development of latticegas and lattice Boltzmann methods and their applications to hydrodynamics, multiphase flows, flows through porous media, reactiondiffusion systems, pattern formation phenomena, and phase separation processes. Discussed here are various aspects of the statistical analysis of these methods, with emphasis on fluctuations and correlations, as well as computational prospects including development of dedicated hardware. Features:  uptodate articles covering theory and applications
 interdisciplinary approach, which includes mathematics, physics, chemistry, and geophysics
 abstracts of papers published from 1992 through 1995
