January, 2019 – Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at the Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences (FNAS) at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU), Dr. Abdo Abou Jaoude, has published a book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing. The book, titled The Computer Simulation of Monte Carlo Methods and Random Phenomena, uses Monte Carlo Methods to develop ways for simulating complex stochastic processes and phenomena: random number generation, computation of Pi and e (the base of logarithms), random walk simulation, probabilistic phenomena, integration (simple and multiple), statistical distributions, neutron shielding algorithm.
The book’s central conceit is that by being able to repeat computer simulations with different data, statistical conclusions can be drawn; and, while the conclusions of such an approach may lack a high degree of mathematical precision, they will still be sufficiently accurate to form an understanding of the simulated process.
The book also contains a section on The Development of Kolmogorov’s Set of Axioms: An Introduction to the Complex Probability Paradigm, a theorem of Dr. Abou Jaoude’s own creation which has been the subject of 12 international journals from 2010 to 2018.
Speaking on this new publication, Dr. Abou Jaoude said: “mathematics is the most positive and certain branch of science. The pleasure of working and doing mathematics and computer science is everlasting. I hope that the reader will benefit from both and share the pleasure of examining the present manuscript.”
Publications like these are essential for the dissemination of knowledge and understanding of STEM fields.
