### clojure-contrib is now deprecated

clojure-contrib is no longer being developed or maintained.

Rather than a single, monolithic, contributions library, Clojure now has
a set of separate libraries for each unit of functionality. The libraries
are in the Clojure GitHub organization at
https://github.com/clojure.
API documentation of the libraries can be found at
http://clojure.github.io.

If you're looking for a specific function or namespace from the old
clojure-contrib, see
"Where Did Clojure.Contrib Go".

Full namespace name:

clojure.contrib.probabilities.monte-carlo
## Overview

Monte-Carlo method support
Monte-Carlo methods transform an input random number stream
(usually having a continuous uniform distribution in the
interval [0, 1)) into a random number stream whose distribution
satisfies certain conditions (usually the expectation value
is equal to some desired quantity). They are thus
transformations from one probability distribution to another one.
This library represents a Monte-Carlo method by a function that
takes as input the state of a random number stream with
uniform distribution (see
clojure.contrib.probabilities.random-numbers) and returns a
vector containing one sample value of the desired output
distribution and the final state of the input random number
stream. Such functions are state monad values and can be
composed using operations defined in clojure.contrib.monads.

## Public Variables and Functions

Usage: (exponential lambda)

Transform a sequence of uniform random numbers in the interval [0, 1)
into a sequence of exponential random numbers with parameter lambda.

## lognormal

function
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (lognormal mu sigma)

Transform a sequence of uniform random numbesr in the interval [0, 1)
into a sequence of lognormal random numbers with mean mu and standard
deviation sigma.

## n-sphere

function
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (n-sphere n r)

Return a uniform distribution of n-dimensional vectors inside an
n-sphere of radius r.
