Hello Folk
I would like to generate very small random number in scipy.
the command random() generate random number in (0,1).
I am doing a simulation that involve very small numbers.
for example I am doing somthing like this:
>>> import random
>>> a = random.random()
>>> if a < 10**-6:
do something
But the 'do domething' is never executed, because 10**-6 is very small,
and in many cases the random number generate is large,
I would like then to generate very small number of order of 10**-6 for
example,
Any idea on how to do that?
Cheers
F
