Instantiations of class template lognormal_distribution model a random distribution . Such a distribution produces random numbers with for x > 0, where and .

lognormal_distribution public construct/copy/destruct

  1. lognormal_distribution(result_type mean_arg = result_type(1), 
                           result_type sigma_arg = result_type(1));

    Constructs a lognormal_distribution. mean and sigma are the mean and standard deviation of the lognormal distribution.

lognormal_distribution public member functions

  1. RealType mean() const;
  2. RealType sigma() const;
  3. void reset();
  4. template<typename Engine> result_type operator()(Engine & eng);
