# Random Numbers in Matlab – Part III

This is the final post in our series on random numbers in Matlab. In the first post, we discussed basic random number functions, and in the second post, we discussed the control of random number generation in Matlab and alternatives for applications with stronger requirements. In this post, we will demonstrate how to create probability distributions with the basic rand and randn functions of Matlab. This is useful in many engineering applications, including reliability analysis and communications.

# Random Numbers in Matlab – Part II

This is our second post in our series on random numbers in Matlab. The first post can be found here. In this post, I will explain how to control the random number generation functions in Matlab and discuss alternatives for projects with stronger requirements for randomness, such as cryptography.

# Random Numbers in Matlab – Part I

In this series of posts, I will explain how to use the various random number generation functions in Matlab. This will include the usage of the basic commands, how to control random number generation, how to create other distributions from the basic functions that Matlab provides, and what alternatives there are to the functions used in Matlab. In this post, I will explain the basic random number generation commands in Matlab, including randrandnrandi, and randperm, and provide some example applications.
