# Creating a distribution with specific mean and variance in FORTRAN 90

 P: 14 Hi, I'm trying to create a normal distribution with mean 0.5 and variance 0.05. I tried it initially with MATLAB, for which I used newdist=0.5+(randn(1,1000)*sqrt(0.05)); Could you please help me in doing this in FORTRAN 90? Would generating a sequence using RANDOM_NUMBER and using the above equation give me similar results? Thank you. (P.S. : The LINUX OS on my system needs to be replaced, and I'm writing some more code before I can run them on another system. It would be great to have your help in the meanwhile, so I could check everything together. Thanks again)
