Generates a 2D gaussian distribution, with an optional argument to take the gaussian to a user-defined power.

generate_2d_gaussian(sd = 1, power = 1, dim = c(11, 11), width = 3)

Arguments

sd

Default 1. Standard deviation of the normal distribution

power

Default 1. Power to take the distribution. Higher values will result in a sharper peak.

dim

Default c(11, 11). The dimensions of the matrix.

width

Default 3 (-10 to 10). The range in which to compute the distribution.

Examples

#if(interactive()){
image(generate_2d_gaussian(1,1,31), asp=1)

#end}
