Abstract : This memorandum is a summary of work done in the field of simulation. The emphasis is on methodology rather than results. The techniques described are extremely simple, and should be easily adaptable to a wide variety of problems which cannot readily be tackled by analytical methods. The memorandum is in two parts: a general discussion of the simulation method adopted; and flow diagrams of the more important programmes and subroutines which have been written.
