Oraciones de ejemplo
  • New techniques such as the Monte Carlo method provided numerical simulations when analytical solutions were not available.
  • In a Monte Carlo method, the quantity to be calculated is interpreted in a stochastic model and, subsequently, estimated by random sampling.
  • The validity of the present method was examined by using computer simulations of molecular evolution in which any branch patterns could be created by using the Monte Carlo method with the weight of the transition probability matrix.
