@mnrnd |

Matrix of normal random numbers.

Syntax: @mnrnd(n1[, n2])

n1: integer

n2: (optional) integer

Return: matrix

Creates a matrix filled with normal random numbers. The size of the matrix is given by the integers n1 (number of rows) and n2 (number of columns).

Examples

matrix m1 = @mnrnd(3,2)

creates a matrix filled with standard normal random numbers.

If n2 is omitted or set to 1, the function returns a vector as in

vector v1 = @mnrnd(18)

You may obtain a random sym of normal numbers by creating a square source matrix of random normals and assigning it to a sym matrix,

sym s1 = @mnrnd(5, 5)

which creates the sym S1 based on the lower triangle of the source matrix.
