: Hi! I have generate N(0,1) random numbers (i.e., zero-mean,
: unit variance normal distribution). Would you tell me how to
: transform them to N(u, sigma^2) numbers ?

If X is N(0,1)-distributed, then (Sigma*X+u) is N(u,Sigma^2)-distributed.
So, just multiply by Sigma and add u to your N(0,1) random numbers.

Hope that helps, best regards, Andreas.
