MAI*MA Using Monte Carlo Method

The first thoughts and attempts I made to practice [the Monte Carlo Method] were suggested by a question which occurred to me in 1946 as I was convalescing from an illness and playing solitaires. The question was what are the chances that a Canfield solitaire laid out with 52 cards will come out successfully? After spending a lot of time trying to estimate them by pure combinatorial calculations, I wondered whether a more practical method than “abstract thinking” might not be to lay it out say one hundred times and simply observe and count the number of successful plays. This was already possible to envisage with the beginning of the new era of fast computers, and I immediately thought of problems of neutron diffusion and other questions of mathematical physics, and more generally how to change processes described by certain differential equations into an equivalent form interpretable as a succession of random operations. Later [in 1946], I described the idea to John von Neumann, and we began to plan actual calculations.[14]

Syntax-highlighting Code Block (with Server-side Rendering) – WordPress plugin | WordPress.org

This plugin extends to Code block in WordPress core to add syntax highlighting which is rendered on the server. By performing the syntax highlighting on the server, there is then no need to enqueue any JavaScript on the frontend (e.g. Highlight.js or Prism.js) and this ensures there is no flash of unhighlighted code (FOUC?). Reducing … Read more Syntax-highlighting Code Block (with Server-side Rendering) – WordPress plugin | WordPress.org
