Stochastic analysis of multicompartment systems(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a discussion of methods for describing, mathematically, flows between compartments in a multicompartment system. We will give the con ventional theory, based on the solution of a system of linear differential equations; we will also give a theory based on probability, viewing the system as a collection of 'states' with a particle moving from statto state with certain probabilities, remaining in each state a random time with an exponential distribution. Finally, we will take still another approach, again based on probability theory, in which we consider the sojourn time of a particle, that is, the time it spends after leaving a given compartment before returning to that compartment.

A fast procedure for generating exponential random variables(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A very fast method for generating exponential random variables in a digital computer is presented. The method is exact, in the sense that in theory it returns a random variable with exactly the exponential distribution. In practice the result is an approximation, but the accuracy of the approximation depends only on the word length of the computer. (Author)

Procedures for generating normal random variables, ii(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A method for generating a normal random variable in terms of uniform random variables is described. The method is based on representing a density function as a mixture of simpler densities. It is fast and requires little storage (60 constants). It is not quite as fast as other methods, but it is simpler, with less chance for prospective users being set adrift in a sea of details.

A FAST PROCEDURE FOR GENERATING NORMAL RANDOM VARIABLES(
)
1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A discussion is given of the generation of normal random variables very rapidly in a computer  for example, at the rate of 10,000  15,000 p r second in the IBM 7090. The method is suitable for any computer. The incorporation of successive improvements has led to a procedure which is fairly easy to program, requires little storage, 300  400 constants, is very fast (it takes about as long to generate the normal x as the uniform u from which it comes), and is completely accurate, in the sense that in theory the procedure returns a random variable with exactly the required distribution; in practice the result is an approximation influenced only by the capacity (word length) of the computer
