Abstract

In this chapter we shall look into one particular computational technique that is being used (and misused) extensively in analyzing stochastic systems: the method of Monte Carlo. The material is closely related to that presented in chapter 1, but is of a more technical nature. In later chapters the method will be applied to many special cases of practical interest, but here the attitude is methodological, with some emphasis on computational efficiency.
