tetrahedron_monte_carlo


tetrahedron_monte_carlo, a FORTRAN90 code which uses the Monte Carlo method to estimates the integral of a function F(X,Y,Z) over the interior of a tetrahedron in 3D.

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.
