Overview ▾

Package rand implements pseudo-random number generators.

Random numbers are generated by a Source. Top-level functions, such as Float64 and Int, use a default shared Source that produces a deterministic sequence of values each time a program is run. Use the Seed function to initialize the default Source if different behavior is required for each run. The default Source is safe for concurrent use by multiple goroutines.

Example (Rand)

This example shows the use of each of the methods on a *Rand. The use of the global functions is the same, without the receiver.

func ExpFloat64

func ExpFloat64() float64

ExpFloat64 returns an exponentially distributed float64 in the range (0, +math.MaxFloat64] with an exponential distribution whose rate parameter (lambda) is 1 and whose mean is 1/lambda (1) from the default Source. To produce a distribution with a different rate parameter, callers can adjust the output using:

sample = ExpFloat64() / desiredRateParameter

Intn returns, as an int, a non-negative pseudo-random number in [0,n) from the default Source. It panics if n <= 0.

func NormFloat64

func NormFloat64() float64

NormFloat64 returns a normally distributed float64 in the range [-math.MaxFloat64, +math.MaxFloat64] with standard normal distribution (mean = 0, stddev = 1) from the default Source. To produce a different normal distribution, callers can adjust the output using:

sample = NormFloat64() * desiredStdDev + desiredMean

func Perm

func Perm(n int) []int

Perm returns, as a slice of n ints, a pseudo-random permutation of the integers [0,n) from the default Source.
