i want to generate 50,000 samples according to the gaussian distribution using random number generator where sigma=1 and mean=0
X is a normally distributed random variable N(0,?2). mean=0 variance=1

I did this
R=randn(50000)

i got an error

Error using randn
Out of memory. Type HELP MEMORY for your options.

and if i am using
R=randn(50000,1);
hist(R)

this generated a distribution but the y label was ranging from -4 to 5. I want it from -infinity to +infinity

how to do that?
