 P: 174 Hi PF, I have a device (with a microcontroller) which generates random numbers. when I analyzed those numbers using Matlab software I found that it is following a uniform distribution. How can I mathematically (any algorithm?) convert this random output to a gaussian one. Also I would like to know the reverse case ie gaussian to uniform one. -Devanand T
 Sci Advisor P: 3,130 If F is the cdf of the Gaussian distribution, and x is a point from your uniform distribution 0<=x<=1, then $y= F^{-1} (x)$ has a Gaussian distribution.
