## Random number generator

### Distribution

The distribution function for the random number generator.

Valid distributions function and their parameters are

Distribution

Parameters

Uniform

• Minimum: The minimum value of the sample.

• Maximum: The maximum value of the sample.

Uniform Integer

• Minimum: The minimum value of the sample.

• Maximum: The maximum value of the sample.

ααααααΆ

• Mean: The mean of the Normal distribution.

• Standard Deviation: The standard deviation of the Normal distribution.

The mean and standard deviation of the numbers generated may not equal the Mean and Standard Deviation inserted in the dialog.

Cauchy

• Median: the median of the data or location parameter.

• Sigma: the scale parameter.

The median and sigma of the generated numbers may not equal the data inserted in the dialog.

### Enable custom seed

Set the initial value of the random number generator to a known value Seed.

### ααααΏα

Value set to initiate the random number generator algorithm. It is used to initialize (seed) the random number generator in order to reproduce the same sequence of pseudorandom numbers. Specify a positive integer number (1, 2, ...) to produce a specific sequence, or leave the field blank if you don't need this particular feature.

### Enable rounding

Round the number to a given number of Decimal Places.

### Decimal places

Number of decimal places of the numbers generated.
