Hammersley and Handscomb 1964 on line

Through the webpage of the Advanced Monte Carlo Methods I & II, given a few years ago by Michael Mascagni at ETH Zürich, I found a link to the scanned version of the 1964 book Monte Carlo Methods by Hammersley and Handscomb. This is a short book, with less than 150 pages, especially if one skips the physics applications, and I will certainly take a look at it in the coming days, following the reading of Halton’s 1970 survey.
