Prof. John Pendergrass 6 Monte Carlo Relies on repeated random sampling Uses random numbers to simulate values from a probability distribution for each input variable Repeated a number of times (trials) to produce an estimate. The more trials, the greater the confidence.
Prof. John Pendergrass 7 Monte Carlo example p = Area of circle / Area of square p = πr 2 / (2r) 2 = π/4 π = 4m/n where, m = points in circle n = points in square

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
