- This can have important consequences. Suppose our integral
involves
- Then if we direct calculate the sum, it has computational cost,
which is 1000 times that of calculating .
- Suppose we generate
**r**and set ( gives you integer part of floating point number**y**). - And then let where chosen by continuous Monte Carlo procedure.
