Method Summary
 double nextNormalizedDouble()
          Generate a random scalar with null mean and unit standard deviation.
 

Method Detail

nextNormalizedDouble

double nextNormalizedDouble()
Generate a random scalar with null mean and unit standard deviation.

This method does not specify the shape of the distribution, it is the implementing class that provides it. The only contract here is to generate numbers with null mean and unit standard deviation.

Returns:
a random scalar with null mean and unit standard deviation
