normal_distribution::normal_distribution

Constructs the distribution.

normal_distribution(const result_type& mean0 = 0,
    const result_type& sigma0 = 1);

mean0

The mean distribution parameter.

sigma0

The sigma distribution parameter.

Precondition: 0.0 <= sigma0

The constructor constructs an object whose stored value stored_mean holds the value mean0 and whose stored value stored_sigma holds the value sigma0.
