GRAN8: Gauss procedure to generate standard EPD (GED) random numbers
Carlos M. Urzúa EGAP Computer Code from Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Ciudad de México
Generation of pseudo-random numbers from the standard Exponential Power Distribution (EPD), also known as the standard Generalized Error Distribution (GED). The density function of the standard EPD is proportional to exp(-abs(x)^tau), with "x" a real number and "tau" a shape parameter greater or equal to 1.
