Function: random_normal (<m>,<s>)
Function: random_normal (<m>,<s>,<n>) Returns a Normal(m,s) random variate, with s>0. Calling
random_normal with a third argument <n>, a random sample of size <n> will be simulated.
This is an implementation of the Box-Mueller algorithm, as described in Knuth, D.E. (1981) <Seminumerical Algorithms. The Art of Computer Programming.> Addison-Wesley.
