Computer simulations of natural phenomena have been used for as long as there have been computers. The first Monte Carlo simulations done via a programmable computer (of neutron transport) were performed on ENIAC in the late 1940s. Sometimes, simulations are essential in order to extract predictions from theories that are analytically intractable, as in… (More)
