Statistical Error Control for Radiative Software Based on Monte Carlo Methods 932258

This paper presents a general error model for MCRT algorithms, which is later applied to the calculation of some basic radiative entities. Furthermore, some issues related to the implementation of such models in a software tool are discussed. Finally, the accuracy control methods are applied to the more complex case of the heat flux absorbed in a given radiative face. Although only the relative error is considered through the discussion, similar results can be derived for the absolute error.
