A Variational Monte Carlo (VMC) method is employed to investigate the properties of symmetric and asymmetric nuclear matter. The realistic Urbana V 14 twonucleon interaction potential of Lagaris and Pandharipande was used to describe the microscopic interactions. Also, many body interactions are included as a density dependent term in the potential. Total kinetic and potential energies per particle are calculated for asymmetric nuclear matter by VMC method at various densities and isospin asymmetry parameters. The results are compared with data found in literature, and it was observed that the results obtained in this study reasonably agree with the results found in the literature. Also, the symmetry energy and incompressibility factor of the nuclear matter were obtained. The results obtained are in good agreement with those obtained by various authors with different methods and techniques.
