This is the homepage of CMPUT 605, a directed study course for the 2011 summer semester. Anyone interested can join. We will cover most chapters of the book "Simulation and the Monte Carlo method" by Kroese and Rubinstein. Each week one student presents a chapter, which will be followed by a discussion. We will meet in CSC 2-49, on Wednesday's at 2pm (except when we won't). Here is the tentative schedule for the course. The instructor is Csaba.
