The use of a Monte Carlo method for uncertainty calculation, with an application to the measurement of neutron ambient dose equivalent rate.

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the use of a Monte Carlo method for uncertainty calculation as an implementation of the propagation of distributions. It reviews the basic principles of the propagation of distributions and numerical aspects of a Monte Carlo implementation. It also discusses the possible advantages in some circumstances of the propagation of… (More)
