random.uniform

random.uniform() 🡒 number, autodiff pure function

Returns a deviate sampled from a uniform distribution over the segment $[0,1[$.

table T = extend.range(5)
T.X = random.uniform() // 1 random value for the table
T.Y = each T
  return random.uniform() // 1 random value per line
show table "" a1c5 with T.X, T.Y

The function random.uniform() does not have any argument, thus, it operates on the Scalar table. This behavior is illustrated with T.X in the above script. In order to obtain a distinct deviate for every line of a table, as it is the case for T.Y, an each can be used.

random.uniform(a: number, b: number) 🡒 number, autodiff pure function

Returns a deviate sampled from a uniform distribution over the segment $[a,b[$. The argument b must be greater or equal to the argument a.

table T = with
  [| as A, as B |]
  [| 0.0,  0.1  |]
  [| 1.5,  2.0  |]
  [| 5.5,  8.0  |]
  [| 10.0, 11.0 |]

show table "" a1c4 with
  T.A
  T.B
  random.uniform(T.A, T.B)
