R Programming for Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods

You will learn how to program statistical applications and Monte Carlo simulations by examining real-life cases and using R software.

What you'll learn

  • Use R software to program probabilistic simulations, often called Monte Carlo simulations.
  • Use R software to program mathematical simulations and to create novel mathematical simulation functions.
  • Use existing R functions and understand how to write their own R functions to perform simulated inference estimates, including likelihoods and confidence intervals, and to model other cases of stochastic simulation.
  • Be able to generate different families (and moments) of both discrete and continuous random variables.
  • Be able to simulate parameter estimation, Monte-Carlo Integration of both continuous and discrete functions, and variance reduction techniques.

Requirements

  • Students will need to install the popular no-cost R Console and RStudio software (instructions provided).

Description

Monte Carlo Simulation and R Programming is a R Programming for Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods course that teaches students how to program probabilistic simulations using R. Simple “real-world” examples include simulating the probability of a baseball player accumulating twenty consecutive hits in one game or estimating the total number of taxicabs when observing a certain sequence of cabs pass in succession before reaching a particular street corner after 60 minutes.

The R Programming for Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods course examines half a dozen (sometimes amusing) examples showing simulated inference estimates, including likelihoods and confidence intervals, and detailed explanations of stochastic simulation, along with how to use the R language to create own functions and perform simulated inference calculations. I provide a detailed description of how to use R to generate various characteristics of various random variable families.

In this R Programming for Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods course, you will learn how to implement various approaches to simulate continuous and discrete random variable probability distribution functions, parameter estimation, Monte-Carlo integration, and variance reduction. Part of the R Programming for Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods course presents the structure and programming of programs for completing mathematical and probabilistic simulations using R statistical software with the spuRs package from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).

Who this course is for:

  • You do NOT need to be experienced with R software and you do NOT need to be an experienced programmer.
  • The course is good for practicing quantitative analysis professionals.
  • The R Programming for Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods course is good for graduate students seeking research data and scenario analysis skills.
  • Anyone interested in learning more about programming statistical applications with R software would benefit from this R Programming for Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods course.
