** Next:** Better multipliers
** Up:** GENERATING RANDOM SEQUENCES
** Previous:** Uniform distribution

Knuth (pp. 117-127) discusses several methods of generating sequences
with Normal distribution, and I prefer the *Polar Method* due to
Box, Muller & Marsaglia, and referenced by Knuth. In SUB5 I combine
integer shuffling, Uniform scaling and shifting, and Gaussian mapping
into a single subroutine.
