Generation of sequence of Random Numbers with a Non-Uniform Distribution Using MATLAB


Suppose we only have a random number generator, which has a U(0, 1) distribution. But we want to generate a sequence of random numbers with a non-uniform distribution (e.g., Exp (2); Par(2)). Now, please

  • first use the random number generator to generate 105 uniformly (U(0; 1)) distributed samples;
  • then transform those samples to data points, which should have a Exp(2), or Par(2)
  • distribution;
  • finally plot those transformed samples by using the hist function.


       1. MATLAB codes, which should be in script _les (.m);

       2. Two figures, which should be in eps format (.eps).



This question belongs to MATLAB software and discusses about application of MATLAB to probability and statistics and how to generate a sequence of random numbers with a non-uniform distribution.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
