Python modules for Monte Carlo integration

Project description

scikit-monaco is a library for Monte Carlo integration in python. The core is written in Cython, with process-level parallelism to squeeze the last bits of speed out of the python interpreter.

A code snippet is worth a thousand words. Let’s look at integrating sqrt(x**2 + y**2 + z**2) in the unit square:

>>> from skmonaco import mcquad
>>> from math import sqrt
>>> result, error = mcquad(
...     lambda xs: sqrt(xs[0]**2+xs[1]**2+xs[2]**2),
...     npoints=1e6, xl=[0.,0.,0.], xu=[1.,1.,1.])
>>> print "{} +/- {}".format(result,error)
0.960695982212 +/- 0.000277843266684
