On the direct evaluation of the equilibrium distribution of clusters by simulation. II


We clarify some of the subtle issues surrounding the observational cluster method, a simulation technique for studying nucleation. The validity of the method is reaffirmed here. The condition of the compact cluster limit is quantified and its implications are elucidated in terms of the correct enumeration of configuration space.
