Generate a random set of floats between a range

advertisements

This might be a silly question but I haven't been able to find a function to generate an array of random floats of a given length between a certain range.

I've looked at Random sampling but no function seems to do what I need.

random.uniform comes close but it only returns a single element, not a specific number.

This is what I'm after:

ran_floats = some_function(low=0.5, high=13.3, size=50)

which would return an array of 50 random non-unique floats (ie: repetitions are allowed) uniformly distributed in the range [0.5, 13.3].

Is there such a function?


np.random.uniform fits your use case: http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/generated/numpy.random.uniform.html

sampl = np.random.uniform(low=0.5, high=13.3, size=(50,))
