The application of Monte Carlo computer simulation techniques to colloidal systems is reviewed. Particular emphasis is placed on the description of model systems studied at Leeds for which formal mathematical theories are either unavailable or underdeveloped. These simulations include models for reversible aggregation of spherical particles, bridging and depletion flocculation of particles by polymer, competitive adsorption in polymer/surfactant and polymer/polymer systems, the conformation of adsorbed proteins, and a relatively new class of deformable particle systems.
