## Generate a vector of predetermined numbers

 I simply have to generate in Octave a 1xn vector of predetermined numbers. I have to generate a 1xn random sequence of 0.7 and 1.8. How can I do it? Thanks

I don't quite understand what you want.  Do you want a sequence containing *only* the numbers 0.7 and 1.8 or do you want a sequence drawn from the interval [0.7, 1.8]? In the first case, I suggest doing something like this:         vals = [ 0.7, 1.8 ];         seq  = vals(ceil(2 * rand([1, n]))); In the second, you could probably get away with         vals = [ 0.7, 1.8 ];         seq  = vals(1) + diff(vals)*rand([1, n]); Of course, the *applicability* of either of these suggestions depends (a lot) on the statistical properties needed in your application.
