Topical Issue


Questions of effective parallel realization for some algorithms of the Monte Carlo method are discussed. Parallel modification of the generator of basic pseudorandom numbers uniformly distributed in the unit interval is described. The technique of distributed computing in the personal computer network with the use of the MONC program system worked out by the authors is described.
