C++ TR1 has code for generating random samples from normal, exponential, gamma, and Poisson distributions directly. Random number generation using C++ TR1 explains how to use this built-in functionality and now to bootstrap the built-in functions to generate samples from Cauchy, Student-t, Snedecor-F, and Weibull distributions.
The C++ implementation of
SimpleRNG is based on the C# class by the same name explained in the article Simple Random Number Generation.
SimpleRNG can be used to generate random unsigned integers and double values with several statistical distributions:
- Chi square
- Inverse gamma
- Laplace (double exponential)
- Log normal
- Student t
