Hi Amit, if you type A and get back: RandomArray[NormalDistribution[], {500, 500}], then clearly the command has not been executed. Either NormalDistribution or RandomArray or both are not defined. Check by "??NormalDistribution" and "??RandomArray" to be sure these are defined. Otherwise, I guess that "<< Statistics`NormalDistribution`" did not work. hope this helps, Daniel amitsoni.1984 at gmail.com wrote: > Hi, > > I want to create a normally distributed random matrix in Mathematica. > I'm using the following code in Mathematica 5.2: > > ------------- code ----------------------------- > << Statistics`NormalDistribution` > n = 500; > A = RandomArray[NormalDistribution[], {n, n}] > ------------------------------------------------ > > But it is not working even though it worked when I did it earlier on > Linux.
