The Normal Distribution

Description

Random generation for the Normal distribution with parameters mu and sigma.

This generator is called by function gensample to create random variables based on its parameters.

Details

If mu or sigma are not specified they assume the default values of 0 and 1, respectively.

The Normal distribution has density:

f(x) = 1/(√(2π*σ)) e^-((x - μ)^2/(2*σ^2))

where μ is the mean of the distribution and σ is the standard deviation.
