Name MAD 4401, Numerical Analysis Keesling Test 2 Due 10/21/11 Do all problems. Do all work in the space provided. Each problem is worth 10 points. Due at the beginning of class on Friday, Oct 21, 2011. 1. Assume a means of generating random numbers that are from the uniform distribution on [0,1]. Using this determine a means of generating random numbers from the cumulative distribution function 1 π arctan( x ) + 2 . 2. Determine a means for generating random numbers from the uniform distribution on the interval [ a , b ] given a means of generating random numbers from a uniform distribution on [0,1].
