Abstract

Random numbers are used in the generation of values from specific distributions. These are used in Monte-Carlo simulation methods which are used extensively in work on stochastic (probabilistic) problems such as queueing, spread of disease and epidemics, stock and inventory control, floodwater control and dam construction.
