The microcanonical ensemble was originally introduced to get the link between dynamical mechanics and statistical mechanics. We have investigated this ensemble to study the comparability of Molecular dynamics simulations and Monte Carlo simulations. Additionally we found some interesting sampling properties of Monte Carlo simulations in the microcanonical ensemble which gives an easier access to liquid-gas like phase transitions than simulations in the canonical ensemble.
