Abstract : Data from 43 computer runs makes possible a study of the Monte Carlo, iterative solutions of the Boltzmann difference equations for a strong shock wave (M1 = 2.5). Estimates have been made of errors associated with iterative convergence, Monte Carlo sampling, number of stations in the shock and variations of the zero-th iterate. Specific results are summarized at the end of the report. (Author)
