Nature of problem:
Computer simulation of sub-critical strings in high energy physics.

Solution method:
String is dicretized as a dynamically triangulated random surface, or mesh, with extrinsic curvature, embedded in arbitrary dimension, and is evolved using a double Monte Carlo computation incorporating both moves to simulate the spatial integration and "flips" in the mesh to simulate the metric integration.
