SAMSI / Duke Conference on “Trends and Advances in Monte Carlo Sampling Algorithms”

December 11, 2017 @ 8:30 am - December 15, 2017 @ 12:45 pm
Penn Pavilion (West Campus)

This second workshop in the SAMSI Program on Quasi-Monte Carlo and High-Dimensional Sampling Methods for Applied Mathematics focusses on Monte Carlo sampling methods –an important class of computational algorithms for estimating high dimensional distributions. Monte Carlo sampling is widely used in physics, chemistry, mathematics and statistics, and is most useful when other methods fail due to the high dimensionality of the problem. Due to the extensive application of Monte Carlo sampling across disciplines, breakthroughs in one discipline can lead to…
