Overview

This book represents the refereed proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Scientific Computing which was held at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2000. An important feature are invited surveys of the state-of-the-art in key areas such as multidimensional numerical integration, low-discrepancy point sets, random number generation, and applications of Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo methods. These proceedings include also carefully selected contributed papers on all aspects of Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo methods. The reader will be informed about current research in this very active field.
