my question is about the correct means of the expression "computer experiment" in a Monte Carlo simulation. What specifically is an "experiment" in a Monte Carlo simulation? Is the same of "Monte Carlo path" or is the whole process adopted to found a magnetization curve, for example?

If the second answer is the correct, how to know how many Monte Carlo experiments I have to do to obtain a trustworthy result??

Thanks a lot!
