# Category:Box-Muller transform

From LiteratePrograms

The Box-Muller transform is a simple method for generating normally distributed random numbers from uniformly distributed random numbers. Since most pseudorandom number generators output uniformly or nearly-uniformly distributed values, it is commonly used in combination with these to create generators for normally distributed values, which are useful in simulating data sets with a known mean (average) and spread.
