The nextGaussian() method of Random class returns the next pseudorandom, Gaussian(normally) distributed double value with mean 0.0 and standard deviation 1.0 from the random number generator’s sequence.

Syntax:

public double nextGaussian()

Parameters: The function does not accepts any parameter.

Return Value: This method returns the next pseudorandom Gaussian distributed double number with mean 0.0 and standard deviation 1.0.

Exception: The function does not throws any exception.

Program below demonstrates the above mentioned function:

Program 1:




// program to demonstrate the
// function java.util.Random.nextGaussian()
  
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create random object
        Random r = new Random();
  
        // check next Gaussian value and print it
        System.out.println("Next Gaussian value is = "
                           + r.nextGaussian());
    }
}

Output:

Next Gaussian value is = 0.3350871100964153

Program 2:




// program to demonstrate the
// function java.util.Random.nextGaussian()
  
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create random object
        Random r = new Random();
  
        // check next Gaussian value and print it
        System.out.println("Next Gaussian value is = "
                           + r.nextGaussian());
    }
}

Output:

Next Gaussian value is = 1.5685150659018154
