This chapter provides an introduction to some of the basic numerical techniques used in lattice QCD. The topics covered include Markov-chain simulations, the HMC algorithm, deflation and variance reduction methods as well as a theoretical analysis of the statistical error propagation from the calculated correlation functions to the physical quantities.

Keywords:   Lattice QCD, Markov chain, HMC algorithm, deflation, variance reduction, statistical error propagation
