estimating pi using a Monte Carlo simulation

Monte Carlo Simulations

Monte Carlo simulations are easy to implement, easy to understand, and yet they can help to solve incredibly complex problems. After reading this article, you will have a good understanding of what Monte Carlo simulations are and what type of problems they can solve.

Why do Cars Move? - Entropy Explained

We explore one of the most fundamental laws of nature, which can not only explain why cars move, but why virtually any macroscopic process evolves in a given direction.
