duel_simulation, a FORTRAN90 code which simulates N instances of a duel between two players.
Player A fires at player B, and hits with a probability of A_ACCURACY. If Player A misses, then Player B fires at Player A, hitting with a probability of B_ACCURACY.
The duel continues with alternating shots until only one player survives.
The simulation is intended to estimate the probabilities that a player will survive.
The exact probability that player 1 will survive is
P(1) / ( P(1) + P(2) - P(1) * P(2) )while player 2's chance is
P(2) * ( 1 - P(1) ) / ( P(1) + P(2) - P(1) * P(2) ).

brownian_motion_simulation, a FORTRAN90 code which simulates Brownian motion in an M-dimensional region.
duel_simulation, a FORTRAN90 code which simulates N repetitions of a duel between two players, each of whom has a known firing accuracy.
FAIR_DICE_SIMULATION, a FORTRAN90 code which simulates N tosses of 2 dice, making a histogram of the results.
HIGH_CARD_SIMULATION, a FORTRAN90 code which simulates a situation in which you see the cards in a deck one by one, and must select the one you think is the highest and stop; the code uses GNUPLOT for graphics.
ISING_2D_SIMULATION, a FORTRAN90 code which carries out a Monte Carlo simulation of an Ising model. a 2D array of positive and negative charges, each of which is likely to flip to be in agreement with neighbors.
ISING_3D_SIMULATION, a FORTRAN90 code which carries out a Monte Carlo simulation of an Ising model, a 3D array of positive and negative charges, each of which is likely to flip to be in agreement with neighbors.
