Lecture 14: Sampling and Monte Carlo Simulation

This video was recorded at 6.00SC Introduction to Computer Science and Programming, Spring 2011 . This lecture starts with some examples of how to use pylab's plotting mechanisms. It then returns to the topic of using probability and statistics to derive information from samples. Topics covered: Plotting, randomness, probability, Pascal's algorithm, Monte Carlo simulation, inferential statistics, gambler's fallacy, law of large numbers.... Show More
