Monte Carlo Methods


Monte Carlo methods provide approximate solutions to quantitative problems by inferring from samples produced through stochastic simulation. While the method itself is based on statistical simulation the problems solved can be both deterministic or probabilistic. A very popular Monte Carlo method is based on Markov chains and known as MCMC (Markov chain Monte Carlo).
