This paper takes up a suggestion made by Hammersley and Morton when introducing their technique of 'antithetic variates' [1]. The), consider the problem of estimating by Monte Carlo methods the value of a definite integral and develop a correlated stratified sampling technique whose efficiency generally exceeds that of crude sampling by a factor n 3, n(More)
Many years ago, John Hammersley induced and encouraged me to work on this application of Monte Carlo as my doctoral research topic; as it seems that some physicists have recently become interested in the idea after its spending a long period in oblivion, it may be worth dusting off and explaining again. The idea stems from a technique originally developed(More)
