Hi ya alll
I am a new Mathematica user.
I have a function that i use to generate a probability distribution
(eg x^2). I want a random number generator, that should generate
values from this probability distribution only,
I know this Random function in mathematica, that can generate in
particular range, but how do i tell to generate from a particular
I created a list of values using my probability function but not able
to integrate it with Random function so that random numnber takes
value from that list.
Also I googled and saw some function like RandomChoice and some other
but they are available in Mathematica6 and i use 5.2.
Can u help with this.
Thanks in advace
