Tags: Monte Carlo


Monte Carlo methods are a class of computational algorithms that rely on repeated random sampling to compute their results. Monte Carlo methods are often used in simulating physical and mathematical systems. Because of their reliance on repeated computation of random or pseudo-random numbers, these methods are most suited to calculation by a computer and tend to be used when it is unfeasible or impossible to compute an exact result with a deterministic algorithm.

  1. The Benefits of Car Pooling

    10 Aug 2018 | Posted by And Rew Dav

    When you start sharing a ride, you don't even need to car pool every day to start saving money. For example, if you can find a co-worker that wants to rideshare just a few days a week, you...

  5. High Dimensional Uncertainty Quantification via Multilevel Monte Carlo

    04 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Hillary Fairbanks

    Multilevel Monte Carlo (MLMC) has been shown to be a cost effective way to compute moments of desired quantities of interest in stochastic partial differential equations when the uncertainty in the data is high-dimensional. In this talk, we investigate the improved performance of MLMC versus...

    25 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Araz Ryan Hashemi

    We shall show how stochastic averaging may be employed to speed computations and obtain estimates of mean values and sensitivities with respect to the steady state distribution. Further, we shall establish bounds which show the bias induced by the averaging method decays to zero as the disparity...
