# Random generation for the generalized Hermite distribution

### Description

Random generation for the generalized Hermite distribution with parameters
`a`

, `b`

and `m`

.

### Usage

1 | ```
rhermite(n, a, b, m=2)
``` |

### Arguments

`n` |
number of observations. |

`a` |
first parameter for the Hermite distribution. |

`m` |
degree of the generalized Hermite distribution. Its default value is |

### Value
