Hi Jordi,

As far as implementions are concerned the book of Bernd Berg seems to be the closest to what you're looking for.
You can find a link to the Fortran codes implementing the methods he describes from his web site:

There is also a nice reference for the analysis of the output of MCMC algorithm by Wolfhard Janke:
Janke W (2002) Statistical Analysis of Simulations: Data Correlations and Error Estimation. In, Quantum Simulations of Complex Many-Body Systems: From Theory to Algorithms, Lecture Notes, J. Grotendorst, D. Marx, A. Muramatsu (Eds.), John von Neumann Institute for Computing, Jülich, NIC Series, Vol. *10*, pp. 423-445.

A Master Carpenter has many tools and is expert with most of them.If you
only know how to use a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail.
Stay away from that trap.
