"A Tutorial on the Monte Carlo Method Applied to Radiative Processes"

ABSTRACT 

The fundamentals of the Monte Carlo method will be presented to show the plethora of problems it can be applied to such as tissue optics, atmospheric and ocean optics, astrophysics, spatially offset Raman spectroscopy, and camouflage in cephalopods just to mention a few. It is the intent of this tutorial that enough material can be covered so that anyone attending will be able to write their own Monte Carlo program for their own specific need.
