We consider the stationary-phase Monte Carlo method and a variety of related approaches. The stationary-phase Monte Carlo method is aimed at the generic problem of performing high-dimensional integrations of rapidly oscillatory integrands. Real time numerical path integration is one important class of applications where such problems arise. We examine the relationship between the stationary-phase Monte Carlo approach and the recent work of Makri and Miller and of Filinov.
