Okay, as soon as I started inquiring about the study of particle accelerator I realize none of professors at my institution is working on this subject. Sadly, we don't even have a particle accelerator. Anyway, further inquiry into this subject led me to believe, I could study something of radiation transport. One thing led to another quiet randomly and now I've decided to spend my last semester studying Monte Carlo method. Don't ask me how the study of particle accelerator is related to Monte Carlo method cuz I don't really know! I hope to find it out myself.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However, I couldn't find out how I should go about educating myself in Monte Carlo method. If anyone out who knows more about this can greatly help me out.

Here's my background:

The most relevant courses I studied is statistics (3 quarters) and probability theory (one quarter). I learned to use R, C++ (just a tiny bit) to do some statistical tests.

So where should I start? Is there a bible book(like Griffith for EM) for a beginner which incorporates C/Matlab as a learning tool?

Thanks for helping :shy:
