std::exponential_distribution<RealType>::exponential_distribution - std::exponential_distribution<RealType>::exponential_distribution


exponential_distribution() : exponential_distribution(1.0) {} (1) (since C++11)
explicit exponential_distribution( RealType lambda ); (2) (since C++11)
explicit exponential_distribution( const param_type& params ); (3) (since C++11)

Constructs a new distribution object. (2) uses lambda as the distribution parameter. (3) uses params as the distribution parameter.


lambda - the λ distribution parameter (the rate parameter)
params - the distribution parameter set


Requires that 0 < lambda.
