The ratio-of-uniforms method for generating random variables having continuous nonuniform distributions is presented. In thin method a point is generated uniformly over a particular region of the plane. The ratio of the coordinate values of thin point yields a deviate with the desired distribution. Algorithms which utilize this techmque are generally short and often as fast as longer algorithms.
