Some probability problems are so difficult that they stump the smartest mathematicians. But even the hardest of these problems can often be solved with a computer and a Monte Carlo simulation, in which a random-number generator simulates a physical process, such as a million rolls of a pair of dice. This is what *Digital Dice* is all about: how to get numerical answers to difficult probability problems without having to solve complicated mathematical equations.
