numpy.random.RandomState.randΒΆ

RandomState.rand(d0, d1, ..., dn)ΒΆ

Random values in a given shape.

Create an array of the given shape and propagate it with random samples from a uniform distribution over [0, 1).

Parameters:

d0, d1, ..., dn : int, optional

The dimensions of the returned array, should all be positive. If no argument is given a single Python float is returned.

Returns:

out : ndarray, shape (d0, d1, ..., dn)

Random values.

Notes

This is a convenience function. If you want an interface that takes a shape-tuple as the first argument, refer to np.random.random_sample .

Examples

>>> np.random.rand(3,2)
array([[ 0.14022471,  0.96360618],  #random
