- Available constructors:
MonteCarloExperiment(distribution, size)

Notes
MonteCarloExperiment is a random weighted design of experiments. The
generate()
method generates points independently from the distribution . The weights associated to the points are all equal to . When thegenerate()
method is recalled, the generated sample changes.Examples
>>> import openturns as ot >>> ot.RandomGenerator.SetSeed(0) >>> experiment = ot.MonteCarloExperiment(ot.Normal(2), 5) >>> print(experiment.generate()) [ X0 X1 ] 0 : [ 0.608202 -1.26617 ] 1 : [ -0.438266 1.20548 ] 2 : [ -2.18139 0.350042 ] 3 : [ -0.355007 1.43725 ] 4 : [ 0.810668 0.793156 ]
