I need to generate random numbers; but they have to follow
the standard distribution. The usual random number generation
routines do not do this.<br><br>
In other words, if I have a range of 1 to 100, I want the
numbers around 50 to occur frequently, and the numbers
about 1 or about 100 to occur with a very low frequency.
With the usual random number generation routines, all
numbers have the same frequency.<br><br>
There must be a simple algorithm that create standard
distribution numbers <i>using the usual generator</i>. (i.e.
An algorithm that converts such numbers)<br>
Does anybody know any function that does this? Can anybody
write a simple algorithm for this purpose?<br><br>
Please do not tell me any non-standard modules because
I have trouble installing them.<br>
<br>
TIA,<br>Sinan
