User’s Guide for SIMGRA 1: An interactive program for simulating the distribution of transformations of several independent random variables; C.F. Chung, S.R. Divi and A.G. Fabbri

An interactive graphic computer program for simulating and displaying the distributions of transformations and extremes of several independent continuous random variables is developed. The parameters and distributions of the initial random variables can be interactively altered. Simulated distributions of transformations and extremes using the Monte Carlo technique are displayed with estimated means and standard deviations.

The report comprises 9 pages of text with illustrations and graphs. It is available for viewing at all the libraries of the Geological Suvey of Canada and may be purchased at the Publications Distribution Office, 601 Booth Street, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0E8.

Cost: Canada - $1.00; Other Countries: $1.20.
