## RANDEXP Generate Exponential Random Variable

Section: Random Number Generation

### Usage

Generates a vector of exponential random variables with the specified parameter. The general syntax for its use isy = randexp(lambda)

where `lambda`

is a vector containing the parameters for
the generated random variables.

### Function Internals

The exponential random variable is usually associated with the waiting time between events in a Poisson random process. The PDF of an exponential random variable is:

### Example

Here is an example of using the`randexp`

function to generate
some exponentially distributed random variables
--> randexp(ones(1,6)) ans = 0.0608 0.0019 1.1266 0.2012 0.5079 3.4205
