TETRAHEDRON_MONTE_CARLO
Monte Carlo Integral Estimates over a Tetrahedron


TETRAHEDRON_MONTE_CARLO, a C library which estimates the integral of a function F(X,Y,Z) over a tetrahedron using the Monte Carlo method.

The library makes it relatively easy to compare different methods of producing sample points in the tetrahedron, and to vary the tetrahedron over which integration is carried out.
