 Author Comment/Response Bo Le 10/02/03 01:13am Hi, A possible approach would be: (1st) to generate n randomly orieanted vectors with length 1: randomVectors[n_]:=Table[ With[{fi=2 \[Pi] Random[]}, {Cos[fi],Sin[fi]}], {n}]; (2nd) to place the vectors on the plane and visualize them, choosing isotropically distributed origin: visualizeVectors[vectors_]:=Show[ Graphics[ With[{x=5 Random[],y=3 Random[]}, Arrow[{x,y},{x,y}+#]]&/@vectors], Frame\[Rule]True, AspectRatio\[Rule]Automatic] Note 5 and 3 in the setting of x and y, this is the domain. Note also you can use a pure Line object to visualize vectors. Hope that helps? Bo Le @ Slovenia URL: ,
