WORKSHOP ON QUASI-MONTE CARLO METHODS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS

WORKSHOP ON
QUASI-MONTE CARLO METHODS
AND THEIR APPLICATIONS

December 11-13, 1995

The efficiency of Monte Carlo methods can often be improved by using uniformly scattered deterministic points instead of pseudo-random points. These quasi-Monte Carlo methods (also known as number-theoretic methods) have been applied to a variety of numerical and statistical problems, including design of experiments, statistical inference, multidimensional quadrature, optimization and simulation.

This fall a workshop will be held at Hong Kong Baptist University to discuss the latest developments in quasi-Monte Carlo methods. The invited speakers include:
