<algorithm> (After Monte Carlo, Monaco - a gambling mecca) Any one of
various methods involving statistical techniques for finding the solutions to
mathematical or physical problems.
For example, to calculate pi: draw a square then draw the biggest circle that
fits exactly inside it. Pick random points on the square. The proportion of
these that lie within the circle should tend to pi/4.
