Dominated rejection algorithms for generating random variates

Authors


Abstract

This focus article presents a practical modified version of the von Neumann dominated rejection method for generating univariate random variates using a distribution density function, a uniform variate over a finite interval, and an independent uniform variate over the unit interval. An example generated variate from the normal distribution family is included for demonstration purposes. WIREs Comput Stat 2012, 4:561–564. doi: 10.1002/wics.1230
