Constrained Monte Carlo and the Method of Control Variates
Glynn, Peter W.

A constrained Monte Carlo problem arises when one computes an expectation in the presence of a priori computable contrains on the expectations of quantities that are correlated with the estimand. This paper discusses different applications settings in which such constrained Monte Carlo computations arise, and establishes a close connection with the method of control variates when the constraints are of equality form.

Analyzing the Effects of Source Selection Method, Acquisition Type, and Service Component on Acquisition Outcomes Landale, Karen A. F.; Rendon, Rene G. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-03); SYM-AM-17-094For years, one of the most hotly contested debates in contracting and acquisition has been the choice of source selection method and the contract-related consequences of that choice. While policy memos encourage contracting ...
