Unif: Uniform Random Distribution

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/Unif.R

Description

Generates uniformly distributed random parameter sets.

Usage

1
Unif(parRange, num)

Arguments

parRange

the range (min, max) of the parameters, a matrix or a data.frame with one row for each parameter, and two columns with the minimum (1st) and maximum (2nd) value.

num

the number of random parameter sets to generate.

Details

In the uniform sampling, each parameter is uniformly random distributed over its range.

Value

a matrix with one row for each generated parameter set, and one column per parameter.

Note

For small sample sizes, the latin hypercube distributed parameter sets (Latinhyper) may give better coverage in parameter space than the uniform random design.
