I could have specified it similarly as rnormal(1,2) however I don't like that formulation because the normal distribution sometimes has the second parameter the variance and sometimes the standard deviation. rnormal()*2 is less ambiguous.Francis Smarthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16658586705916884436noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6288862798546085706.post-76273341448639317062012-12-13T23:47:12.882-05:002012-12-13T23:47:12.882-05:00Thanks for the interesting post.
