Monte Carlo method

DOI: 10.1615/thermopedia.000260


The Monte Carlo method is a general algorithm that can be applied to any physical problem that can be broken down into a sequence of events, each of which having a certain probability of occurrence. Before it was applied to radiative transfer (RT) problems, the Monte Carlo method had found applications in a diversity of physical and mathematical problems (Hammersley and Handscomb, 1964). It was first applied to calculations of light scattering in the atmosphere by Collins and Wells (1965) and Plass and Kattawar (1968). Following that, it was applied to light scattering in a coupled atmosphere-ocean system by Plass and Kattawar (1969, 1972).
