The Mathematics of Monte-Carlo Simulations
With the advent of computing power, Simulations have become a prevalent tool for us to understand complex systems and their behavior. Often such system needs arbitrary initial data and such inputs are not readily available. A possible solution to this dilemma is the use of the random numbers and generically such method is christened as Monte-Carlo method ( after the famous casino town in Southern Europe).
However, the root of such methods lie in statistical physics and most of the time Engineers, programmers overlook the interrelation between the concepts involved in this apparently unrelated field. In this workshop, we will try to shed light on the background necessary and discuss how at least the fundamental concepts are tightly wound together.
We expect the attendees have some rudimentary knowledge in C and very basic concepts in general physics and math at the level of sophomore students.
