Detailed Description

The log-normal distribution Random Number Generator (RNG) that allows stream numbers to be set deterministically.


This class supports the creation of objects that return random numbers from a fixed log-normal distribution. It also supports the generation of single random numbers from various log-normal distributions.

LogNormalRandomVariable defines a random variable with a log-normal distribution. If one takes the natural logarithm of random variable following the log-normal distribution, the obtained values follow a normal distribution.

The probability density function is defined over the interval [0, $+\infty$) as: $ \frac{1}{x\sigma\sqrt{2\pi}} e^{-\frac{(ln(x) - \mu)^2}{2\sigma^2}}$ where $ mean = e^{\mu+\frac{\sigma^2}{2}} $ and $ variance = (e^{\sigma^2}-1)e^{2\mu+\sigma^2}$

The $ \mu $ and $ \sigma $ parameters can be calculated instead if the mean and variance are known with the following equations: $ \mu = ln(mean) - \frac{1}{2}ln\left(1+\frac{variance}{mean^2}\right)$, and, $ \sigma = \sqrt{ln\left(1+\frac{variance}{mean^2}\right)}$

Here is an example of how to use this class:

double mu = 5.0;
double sigma = 2.0;
Ptr<LogNormalRandomVariable> x = CreateObject<LogNormalRandomVariable> ();
x->SetAttribute ("Mu", DoubleValue (mu));
x->SetAttribute ("Sigma", DoubleValue (sigma));
// The expected value for the mean of the values returned by a
// log-normally distributed random variable is equal to
//
// 2
// mu + sigma / 2
// E[value] = e .
//
double value = x->GetValue ();

◆ GetInteger() [1/2]

uint32_t ns3::LogNormalRandomVariable::GetInteger ( uint32_t  mu,
uint32_t  sigma 
)

Returns a random unsigned integer from a log-normal distribution with the specified mu and sigma.

Parameters
[in]muMu value for the log-normal distribution.
[in]sigmaSigma value for the log-normal distribution.
Returns
A random unsigned integer value.

Note that antithetic values are being generated if m_isAntithetic is equal to true. If $u1$ and $u2$ are uniform variables over [0,1], then the value that would be returned normally, $x$, is calculated as follows:

\begin{eqnarray*} v1 & = & -1 + 2 * u1 \\ v2 & = & -1 + 2 * u2 \\ r2 & = & v1 * v1 + v2 * v2 \\ normal & = & v1 * \sqrt{\frac{-2.0 * \log{r2}}{r2}} \\ x & = & \exp{sigma * normal + mu} . \end{eqnarray*}

For the antithetic case, $(1 - u1$) and $(1 - u2$) are the distances that $u1$ and $u2$ would be from $1$. The antithetic value returned, $x'$, is calculated as follows:

\begin{eqnarray*} v1' & = & -1 + 2 * (1 - u1) \\ v2' & = & -1 + 2 * (1 - u2) \\ r2' & = & v1' * v1' + v2' * v2' \\ normal' & = & v1' * \sqrt{\frac{-2.0 * \log{r2'}}{r2'}} \\ x' & = & \exp{sigma * normal' + mu} . \end{eqnarray*}

which now involves the distances $u1$ and $u2$ are from 1.

Returns
A floating point random value.

Note that antithetic values are being generated if m_isAntithetic is equal to true. If $u1$ and $u2$ are uniform variables over [0,1], then the value that would be returned normally, $x$, is calculated as follows:

For the antithetic case, $(1 - u1$) and $(1 - u2$) are the distances that $u1$ and $u2$ would be from $1$. The antithetic value returned, $x'$, is calculated as follows:

which now involves the distances $u1$ and $u2$ are from 1.

Note that we have to re-implement this method here because the method is overloaded above for the two-argument variant and the c++ name resolution rules don't work well with overloads split between parent and child classes.
