#### Monte Carlo Methods, Volume 1

Wiley 2008; US$ 170.00Malvin H. Kalos obtained his BS at Queens College and his MS and PhD at the University of Illinois. After holding a professorship of computer science and being the Director of the Ultracomputer Research Laboratory at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University, he accepted a post as a scientist at the Livermore National Laboratory.... more...

#### Statistical Simulation

CRC Press 2009; US$ 109.95Headrick?s book is a valuable addition to the simulation world in the sense that it is the first systematic book on power method polynomials ? this book has potential to be one of the key sources for researchers who are involved in random number generation and Monte Carlo studies. ? it can serve and seems to be designed as a supplemental text in graduate... more...

#### 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$ 115.95"? the uninitiated would greatly benefit from carefully reading the first three chapters ? . For a more experienced and hands-on reader who is looking for up-to-date developments and implementations of cutting-edge MCMC tools for highly complex problems, the Handbook brings twelve chapters with applications and case studies from areas ranging from... 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

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

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 182.00The survey articles in this book focus on number theoretic point constructions, uniform distribution theory, and quasi-Monte Carlo methods. As deterministic versions of the Monte Carlo method, quasi-Monte Carlo rules enjoy increasing popularity, with many fruitful applications in mathematical practice, as for example in finance, computer... more...
