#### 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...

#### Handbook of Markov Chain Monte Carlo

CRC Press 2011; US$ 119.95Since 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...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 64.00 US$ 58.24Non-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...

#### Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods 2012

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 126.08This book represents the refereed proceedings of the Tenth International Conference on Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Scientific Computing that was held at the University of New South Wales (Australia) in February 2012. These biennial conferences are major events for Monte Carlo and the premiere event for quasi-Monte Carlo research. The... 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...

#### Interacting Multiagent Systems

OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 97.99Mathematical modelling of systems constituted by many agents using kinetic theory is a new tool that has proved effective in predicting the emergence of collective behaviours and self-organization. This idea has been applied by the authors to various problems which range from sociology to economics and life sciences. more...

#### Uniform Distribution and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 196.00This book is summarizing the results of the workshop "Uniform Distribution and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods" of the RICAM Special Semester on "Applications of Algebra and Number Theory" in October 2013. The survey articles in this book focus on number theoretic point constructions, uniform distribution theory, and quasi-Monte Carlo methods.... more...

#### Monte Carlo Methods for Applied Scientists

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56The 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...

#### Geometrically Constructed Markov Chain Monte Carlo Study of Quantum Spin-phonon Complex Systems

Springer Japan 2013; US$ 103.15This book introduces a new Markov chain optimization method with braking the detailed balance. It develops a quantum Monte Carlo method for nonconserved particles and combines it with the excitation level analysis. more...
