Sampling exactly from the normal distributionMar 25 2013Jun 10 2014An algorithm for sampling exactly from the normal distribution is given. The algorithm reads some number of uniformly distributed random digits in a given base and generates an initial portion of the representation of a normal deviate in the same base. ... More

Transverse Mercator with an accuracy of a few nanometersFeb 08 2010Feb 03 2011Implementations of two algorithms for the transverse Mercator projection are described; these achieve accuracies close to machine precision. One is based on the exact equations of Thompson and Lee and the other uses an extension of Krueger's series for ... More

Quaternions in molecular modelingJun 23 2005Apr 04 2006Quaternions are an important tool to describe the orientation of a molecule. This paper considers the use of quaternions in matching two conformations of a molecule, in interpolating rotations, in performing statistics on orientational data, in the random ... More
