Random Number Generation in R

Adrian Tam rolls the dice:

Whether working on a machine learning project, a simulation, or other models, you need to generate random numbers in your code. R as a programming language, has several functions for random number generation. In this post, you will learn about them and see how they can be used in a larger program. Specifically, you will learn

  • How to generate Gaussian random numbers into a vector
  • How to generate uniform random numbers
  • How to manipulate random vectors and random matrices

And, of course, these are pseudo-random numbers because we’re still dealing with computers and random seeds, after all.
