Main Document

Computational Physics Resources: Basic Monte Carlo Methods 

written by Spencer Wheaton

The Basic Monte Carlo Methods Models and Worksheets collection is designed to teach basic Monte Carlo techniques (e.g. generating and testing random sequences, simulating random walks and radioactive decay, and sampling according to a given distribution) using ready-to-run EJS programs.  This material has been developed and tested at the University of Cape Town.
