This question already has an answer here:
How's Monte Carlo different from random sampling with replacement?
Because Wikipedia page for Monte Carlo says:
Monte Carlo methods vary, but tend to follow a particular pattern:
- Define a domain of possible inputs
- Generate inputs randomly from a probability distribution over the domain
- Perform a deterministic computation on the inputs
- Aggregate the results
Isn't 2 about doing exactly the same thing as sampling with replacement?
Or is it Monte Carlo, because one does 3. and 4. in addition?
