#### Exploring Monte Carlo Methods

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 124.00Exploring 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...

#### Minimization of Computational Costs of Non-Analogue Monte Carlo Methods

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 92.00Non-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...

#### Interacting Multiagent Systems

Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 97.99The description of emerging collective phenomena and self-organization in systems composed of large numbers of individuals has gained increasing interest from various research communities in biology, ecology, robotics and control theory, as well as sociology and economics.Applied mathematics is concerned with the construction, analysis and interpretation... more...

#### Handbook of Markov Chain Monte Carlo

CRC Press 2011; US$ 109.95Since 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...

#### Sequential Monte Carlo Methods for Nonlinear Discrete-Time Filtering

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 40.00In 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...

#### Monte Carlo Methods, Volume 1

Wiley 2008; US$ 170.00This 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...

#### Simulation and the Monte Carlo Method

Wiley 2011; US$ 144.00Reuven Y. Rubinstein , DSc, is Professor Emeritus in the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. He has served as a consultant at numerous large-scale organizations, such as IBM, Motorola, and NEC. The author of over 100 articles and six books, Dr. Rubinstein is also the inventor of the popular... more...

#### Premiers pas en simulation (Statistique et probabilités appliquées) (French Edition)

Springer 2008; US$ 29.95Ce 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...

#### Monte Carlo Methods for Applied Scientists

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 189.00The Monte Carlo method is inherently parallel and the extensive and rapid development in parallel computers, computational clusters and grids has resulted in renewed and increasing interest in this method. At the same time there has been an expansion in the application areas and the method is now widely used in many important areas of science including... more...
