- You can pose general problem of best method in
**k**dimensions: the answer is not known in general and is probably not either Monte Carlo Gaussian for each coordinate. - Once
**k**is bigger than around 3, Monte Carlo is usually best pragmatic choice. The distribution of points in multidimensional integrals is contrasted in figures MC.1 and MC.2.
