Exploring Monte Carlo Methods is a basic text that describes the numerical methods that have come to be known as "Monte Carlo." The book treats the subject generically through the first eight chapters and, thus, should be of use to anyone who wants to learn to use Monte Carlo. The next two chapters focus on applications in nuclear engineering, which... more...

Since their popularization in the 1990s, Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods have revolutionized statistical computing and have had an especially profound impact on the practice of Bayesian statistics. Furthermore, MCMC methods have enabled the development and use of intricate models in an astonishing array of disciplines as diverse as fisheries... more...

In the last three decades, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of interacting particle methods as a powerful tool in real-world applications of Monte Carlo simulation in computational physics, population biology, computer sciences, and statistical machine learning. Ideally suited to parallel and distributed computation, these advanced particle... more...

Non-analogue Monte Carlo methods are useful when the direct simulation techniques are insufficient. To use the additional discretization, Monte Carlo estimates are biased and it is desirable to optimize the connection between discretization parameters and the sample size. In this connection, the book investigates variances of non-analogue Monte Carlo... more...

This introduction to Monte Carlo Methods seeks to identify and study the unifying elements that underlie their effective application. It focuses on two basic themes. The first is the importance of random walks as they occur both in natural stochastic systems and in their relationship to integral and differential equations. The second theme is that... more...

Presents essential tools for using quasi-Monte Carlo sampling in practice. This book focuses on issues related to Monte Carlo methods - uniform and non-uniform random number generation, variance reduction techniques. It covers several aspects of quasi-Monte Carlo methods. more...

Monte Carlo approximation to the null distribution of the test provides a convenient means of testing model fit. This book proposes a Monte Carlo-based methodology to construct this type of approximation when the model is semistructured. It addresses both applied and theoretical aspects of nonparametric Monte Carlo tests. more...

Ce livre est une introduction aux techniques de simulation. Après un bref rappel des techniques fondamentales du calcul des probabilités, il expose divers procédés pour générer en grande quantités des nombres aléatoires. Les transformations de variables utilisées pour simuler des échantillons fictifs d?une variable aléatoire et les tests d?hypothèses... more...

Portfolio optimization is a widely studied problem in finance dating back to the work of Merton from the 1960s. While many approaches rely on dynamic programming, some recent contributions use martingale techniques to determine the optimal portfolio allocation. Using the latter approach, we follow a journal article from 2003 and show how optimal portfolio... more...

In these notes, we introduce particle filtering as a recursive importance sampling method that approximates the minimum-mean-square-error (MMSE) estimate of a sequence of hidden state vectors in scenarios where the joint probability distribution of the states and the observations is non-Gaussian and, therefore, closed-form analytical expressions for... more...
