# Precision of Monte-Carlo simulation for integrals

Value without correction
Output of the Monte-Carlo simulation (vmc).
Value with control variate correction
Output of the Monte-Carlo simulation after the application of the control variate method (vcv). Value used by Biogeme.
Relative error
100 (vmc - vcv) / vcv
Std. dev. without correction
Calculated as the square root of the variance of the original draws, divided by the square root of the number of draws (stdmc).
Std. dev. with control variate correction
Calculated as the square root of the variance of the corrected draws, divided by the square root of the number of draws (stdcv).
Reduced number of draws
Rcv = R stdcv2/stdmv2, where R is the current number of draws. This is the number of draws that are sufficient (when the correction is applied) to achieve the same precision as the method without correction.
Savings
100 * (R-Rcv) / R
Control variate simulated
Value of the integral used for control variate using Monte-Carlo simulation (simulated).
Control variate analytical
Value of the analytical integral used for control variate (analytical).
Relative error on control variate
100 (simulated - analytical) / analytical. If this value is more than 1% (in absolute value), the row is displayed in red, emphasizing that either the number of draws for the original Monte-Carlo is insufficient, or the analytical value of the integral is wrong.
