Weight optimization in multichannel Monte Carlo

10 May 1994 R. Kleiss R. Pittau

We discuss the improvement in the accuracy of a Monte Carlo integration that can be obtained by optimization of the `a-priori weights' of the various channels. These channels may be either the strata in a stratified-sampling approach, or the several `approximate' distributions such as are used in event generators for particle phenomenology... (read more)
