Hi Tomi,

for random numbers, see RandomInteger or RandomReal in the manual. They 

can generates lists.

The function can be written e.g. as:







here we used that the sum of squares is n, that 0<=xi, we sorted xi 

ascending and we request that x must be integers. Finally Reduce does 

the actual work.

hope this helps, Daniel
