Anyway, there are several ways of generating random values from an arbitrary PDF, and the one that suits your case (assume that it will be a PDF) need to use inverse functions and CDF if y is the CDF, which has a known inverse function y=CDF(x) that is x = f(y) where f is the inverse function of the CDF then f(z) returns a random point according to the PDF tyou want, where z~Uniform(0,1) yehuda URL: ,
