MCSim User' Manual

MCSim is a general purpose modeling and simulation program which also performs standard or Markov chain Monte Carlo simulations. It allows you to specify a set of linear or nonlinear equations (eventually differential), and solve them using parameter values you choose or parameter values sampled from specified statistical distributions. Simulation outputs can be compared to experimental data for parameter estimation.
