In Chases and Escapes ,... more...

  • Digital Diceby Paul J. Nahin

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 27.95

    Some probability problems are so difficult that they stump the smartest mathematicians. But even the hardest of these problems can often be solved with a computer and a Monte Carlo simulation, in which a random-number generator simulates a physical process, such as a million rolls of a pair of dice. This is what Digital Dice is all about: how to... more...
