LOS ANGELES, July 2, C.'TV—Your MIIOVC aboul at random. By using bomb shelter in any future atomic var may be safer as a result ol a inference tins week between mathematicians and physicists. "The problem of how lo shield civilians from radiation in an atomic explosion may be nearer solution because of this symposium on the Monte Carlo method." Dr. J. H. Curliss, chief of the Applied Mathematics Division of the National Bureau of Standards, said. The "Monte Carlo method." details of which were top secret, during the war. is a new way of solving mathematical equations. It rec- j ognlzcs that there are certain elements of chance in figuring where a high-speed missile—or a particle from an exploded atom—will go. Tf you were a worker in an atomic bomb factory, you'd have to be shielded from certain tiny but deadly pavtitles ol radiation. If scientists can determine in advance where these particles are most likely lo hit, they can give you better protection. The trouble is. these particles new electronic computing machines, however, scientists hope lo "outguess" the wild particles and predict the paths most of them arc likely lo take. ! If (hey can do this, the protective shields in atomic energy plants —or in bomb shelters of the future —will be more effective. "In a sense." Dr Curtis said yesterday, "Monte Carlo is the story of roulette and atomic energy. Games of chance, like roulette or dice, can be analyzed statistically in accordance with the laws of probability. moving objects. 1 * Attending the symposium were representatives of a business-machine corporation, the Atomic Energy Commission, the Bureau of Standards, and Die Rand Corporation.
