Thread: Generating a random "normal" number

    Default Generating a random "normal" number

    Hello, starting from the kettle tranformation generating a list of random number, we used the Box Muller formula to obtain NORMAL numbers... click on the link to obtain the tranformation in ktr format.

    Hope will be useful.

    Why using random numbers extracted from a normal distribution? Take a look at this article: simulating random values from normal distributions using kettle
