Stochastic simulation methods have frequently been applied to radiation transport problems, although the use of sensitivity analysis and Monte Carlo perturbation algorithms has only been applied to a relatively few, specific, problems. However the perturbation of a response as a consequence of small parameter changes can be more interesting than the actual response. This paper deals with two methods for the calculation of small parameter variations. Correlation techniques provide straightforward estimates of perturbations, while differential operator sampling allows the determination of gradients and higher order derivatives.
