2018-04-26 02:51:16 +0100 commented answer Generating a random vector with elements in specified range

@Emmanuel Charpentier: I really need it to be a closed interval though. This is the beginning of a function for a Monte Carlo simulation. I need to know when the input (which is a probability) is less than one.

2018-04-25 20:53:28 +0100 asked a question Generating a random vector with elements in specified range

I would like to generate a random vector in which its elements are between 0 and 1 (including 0 and 1). As far as I know, v = random_matrix(ZZ, 1, 10) is a way to generate a random matrix. How would I restrict the elements to the range I want?

I am trying to build a function with a probability input, and then compare the probability to each of the elements separately in the random vector.

@dan_fulea Yeah, I realize lam has nothing to do with the system. I am just trying to emulate an example from a textbook which includes the variable lam. However, I am unable to figure out what lam is supposed to do or what it is supposed to equal.

It appears after lam ==

solve([diff(P,x) == 0, diff(P,y) == 0], x, y, lam)

[[x == 816.8214285714286, y == 506.0324074074074, lam == r5], [x == -816.2645502645503, y == -514.5402298850574, lam == r6], [x == (13.33265402759081 + 1414.015105182754*I), y == (3.906674551362281 - 883.7900965450355*I), lam == r7], [x == (13.33265402759081 - 1414.015105182754*I), y == (3.906674551362281 + 883.7900965450355*I), lam == r8]]

@dan_fulea, No we do not. I wasn't sure.

2018-01-31 23:26:36 +0100 asked a question Help with defining constraints in Lagrangian

I am trying to maximize the function P, with constraints of x >= 75,000 and y >= 200,000. However, I do not think I am defining them correctly. I attempt to define them as arguments of the solve() function.

P = (0.05*x*(1-(x/150000) - 0.0000008*x*y)) + (0.08*y*(1-(y/200000) - 0.0000008*x*y))
