In these lectures we provide a short introduction to the Monte Carlo integration method and its applications. We show how the origin of ultraviolet divergences if Field Theories is in the undefined formal product of distributions and how one can define the Path Integral in terms of regularized distributions in order to cancel these divergences. This technique provides the only non perturbative regularization procedure of continuum Field Theories and, at the same time, provides a practical…

Quick introduction to lattice QCD, maximum entropy method, and hadron spectral functions above the deconfinement phase transition
We explain the basic principles in lattice gauge theory and the maximum entropy method (MEM), in particular emphasizing the importance of extrapolations in lattice gauge simulations and error
