Defined in header <random>
template< class RealType = double >
class lognormal_distribution;
(since C++11)

The lognormal_distribution random number distribution produces random numbers x > 0 according to a log-normal distribution:

f(x; m,s) =
1
sx2 π
exp

-
(ln x - m)2
2s2


The parameter m is the mean and the parameter s the standard deviation.

Characteristics
returns the distribution parameters
(public member function) [edit]
gets or sets the distribution parameter object
(public member function) [edit]
returns the minimum potentially generated value

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>
#include <map>
#include <random>
#include <cmath>
int main()
{
    std::random_device rd;
    std::mt19937 gen(rd());
 
    std::lognormal_distribution<> d(1.6, 0.25);
 
    std::map<int, int> hist;
    for(int n=0; n<10000; ++n) {
        ++hist[std::round(d(gen))];
    }
    for(auto p : hist) {
        std::cout << std::fixed << std::setprecision(1) << std::setw(2)
                  << p.first << ' ' << std::string(p.second/200, '*') << '\n';
    }
}
