The Monte Carlo Method. Popular Lectures in Mathematics.
Sobol', I. M.
The Monte Carlo Method is a method of approximately solving mathematical and physical problems by the simulation of random quantities. The principal goal of this booklet is to suggest to specialists in all areas that they will encounter problems which can be solved by the Monte Carlo Method. Part I of the booklet discusses the simulation of random variables. Part II gives examples of applications of the Monte Carlo Method. (Author/MK)
