TOMS441
Random Deviates from the Dipole Distribution
TOMS441
is a FORTRAN77 library which
implements ACM TOMS algorithm 441, for returning random
deviates from the dipole distribution.
The text of many ACM TOMS algorithms is available online
through ACM:
http://www.acm.org/pubs/calgo
or NETLIB:
http://www.netlib.org/toms/index.html.
Usage:

x = dipole ( a, b, seed )

where A and B are parameters of the distribution,
SEED is a seed value for the random number generator,
and the value of the sample is returned in DIPOLE.
Languages:
TOMS441 is available in
a FORTRAN77 version.
Related Data and Programs:
PROB,
a FORTRAN90 library which
contains routines to sample the dipole distribution,
or to evaluate the CDF or PDF.
