Look for the descriptive text:"This workbook hosts a simulator with which you can estimate your results in a (multi distance, multi target) match, e.g. the NRA 90 shot full bore regional match course."

In this case, i imagined that input parameters are generated in such a way that they are consistent with a certain probability distribution. Then a trajectory calculated and evaluated. The process is repeated hundreds of times. This is what one might describe as Monte Carlo.

Quote from: admin on June 25, 2014, 01:47:55 PMIn visual basic and as an Excel function I have published random number generators, two of them generate numbers with a constant probability ("flat").The other one. =bfx_rang(....) generates numbers according to a gaussian distribution.The properties of Excels random generators did not suit my purpose.The "flat" distribution is the basis for generating numbers distributed according to another distribution.For gaussian distributions efficient algorithms can be googled.Nevertheless, the more random variables involved in a simulation, the less details of a certain random variable matter.
