Modules

A distribution uniformly sampling numbers within a given range.

This module contains an implementation of alias method for sampling random indices with probabilities proportional to a collection of weights.

Structs

Sample a u8, uniformly distributed over ASCII letters and numbers: a-z, A-Z and 0-9.

The Bernoulli distribution.

The Beta distribution with shape parameters alpha and beta.

The binomial distribution Binomial(n, p).

The Cauchy distribution Cauchy(median, scale).

The chi-squared distribution χ²(k), where k is the degrees of freedom.

The Dirichlet distribution Dirichlet(alpha).

An iterator that generates random values of T with distribution D, using R as the source of randomness.

The exponential distribution Exp(lambda).

Samples floating-point numbers according to the exponential distribution, with rate parameter λ = 1. This is equivalent to Exp::new(1.0) or sampling with -rng.gen::<f64>().ln(), but faster.

The Fisher F distribution F(m, n).

The Gamma distribution Gamma(shape, scale) distribution.

The geometric distribution Geometric(p) bounded to [0, u64::MAX].

The hypergeometric distribution Hypergeometric(N, K, n).

The log-normal distribution ln N(mean, std_dev**2).

The normal distribution N(mean, std_dev**2).

A distribution to sample floating point numbers uniformly in the open interval (0, 1), i.e. not including either endpoint.

A distribution to sample floating point numbers uniformly in the half-open interval (0, 1], i.e. including 1 but not 0.

Samples floating-point numbers according to the Pareto distribution

The PERT distribution.

The Poisson distribution Poisson(lambda).

A generic random value distribution, implemented for many primitive types. Usually generates values with a numerically uniform distribution, and with a range appropriate to the type.

Samples integers according to the geometric distribution with success probability p = 0.5. This is equivalent to Geometeric::new(0.5), but faster.

Samples floating-point numbers according to the normal distribution N(0, 1) (a.k.a. a standard normal, or Gaussian). This is equivalent to Normal::new(0.0, 1.0) but faster.

The Student t distribution, t(nu), where nu is the degrees of freedom.

The triangular distribution.

Sample values uniformly between two bounds.

Samples uniformly from the unit ball (surface and interior) in three dimensions.

Samples uniformly from the edge of the unit circle in two dimensions.

Samples uniformly from the unit disc in two dimensions.

Samples uniformly from the surface of the unit sphere in three dimensions.

Samples floating-point numbers according to the Weibull distribution

A distribution using weighted sampling of discrete items

Samples integers according to the zeta distribution.

Samples integers according to the Zipf distribution.
