# Struct rand_distr::LogNormal[−][src]

``pub struct LogNormal<F> where    F: Float,    StandardNormal: Distribution<F>,  { /* fields omitted */ }``
Expand description

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

If `X` is log-normal distributed, then `ln(X)` is `N(mean, std_dev**2)` distributed.

## Example

``````use rand_distr::{LogNormal, Distribution};

// mean 2, standard deviation 3
let log_normal = LogNormal::new(2.0, 3.0).unwrap();
println!("{} is from an ln N(2, 9) distribution", v)``````

## Implementations

Construct, from (log-space) mean and standard deviation

Parameters are the “standard” log-space measures (these are the mean and standard deviation of the logarithm of samples):

• `mu` (`μ`, unrestricted) is the mean of the underlying distribution
• `sigma` (`σ`, must be finite) is the standard deviation of the underlying Normal distribution

Construct, from (linear-space) mean and coefficient of variation

Parameters are linear-space measures:

• mean (`μ > 0`) is the (real) mean of the distribution
• coefficient of variation (`cv = σ / μ`, requiring `cv ≥ 0`) is a standardized measure of dispersion

As a special exception, `μ = 0, cv = 0` is allowed (samples are `-inf`).

Sample from a z-score

This may be useful for generating correlated samples `x1` and `x2` from two different distributions, as follows.

``````let mut rng = thread_rng();
let z = StandardNormal.sample(&mut rng);
let x1 = LogNormal::from_mean_cv(3.0, 1.0).unwrap().from_zscore(z);
let x2 = LogNormal::from_mean_cv(2.0, 4.0).unwrap().from_zscore(z);``````
