Hi, a Gaussian distribution is not confined to an interval. Therefore, you must better specify what you mean by "b/w -4&4". The parameters of such a distribution are the mean and standard deviation, that's all. cheers, Daniel Am 16.05.2010 11:57, schrieb elvisgraceland at gmail.com: > Dear experts, > Is it possible to generate random numbers b/w any two limits (say b/w > -4& 4 ) which would comply to a gaussian distribution ? > -- Daniel Huber Metrohm Ltd.
