Rare Event Simulation using Monte Carlo Methods

Buy
In a probabilistic model, a rare event is an event with a very small probability of occurrence. The forecasting of rare events is a formidable task but is important in many areas. For instance a catastrophic failure in a transport system or in a nuclear power plant, the failure of an information processing system in a bank, or in the communication network of a group of banks, leading to financial losses. Being able to evaluate the probability of rare events is therefore a critical issue.

Monte Carlo Methods, the simulation of corresponding models, are used to analyze rare events. This book sets out to present the mathematical tools available for the efficient simulation of rare events. Importance sampling and splitting are presented along with an exposition of how to apply these tools to a variety of fields ranging from performance and dependability evaluation of complex systems, typically in computer science or in telecommunications, to chemical reaction analysis in biology or particle transport in physics.

Graduate students, researchers and practitioners who wish to learn and apply rare event simulation techniques will find this book beneficial.

Geocaching: Hike and Seek with Your GPS (Technology in Action Series)
It isn't often that you witness the birth of a new sport or game. I'm not referring to some variation on a theme, like snowboarding on your hands, or to one of the prepackaged amusements that erupt like a volcano of marketing froth during the holiday seasons, but a real game-one that catches the imagination and quickly...

Statistical Computing in C++ and R (Chapman & Hall/CRC The R Series)

With the advancement of statistical methodology inextricably linked to the use of computers, new methodological ideas must be translated into usable code and then numerically evaluated relative to competing procedures. In response to this, Statistical Computing in C++ and R concentrates on the writing of code rather...
