When I enter A it just gives: The code above should not have worked as written on any OS running version 5.2 of Mathematica. If you look at the syntax for the NormalDistribution function you will see it needs to be told the mean and standard deviation. That is the correct code would be Statistics`NormalDistribution` n = 500; A = RandomArray[NormalDistribution[0,1], {n, n}] for generating random normal deviates with mean = 0 and standard deviation = 1 -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
