We address the problem of synthesizing a generalized Gaussian noise with exponent 1/2 by means of a nonlinear memoryless transformation applied to a uniform noise. We show that this transformation is expressable in terms of a special function known under the name of the Lambert W function. We review the main methods for numerical evaluation of the relevant branch of the (multivalued) Lambert W function with controlled accuracy and complement them with an original rational function approximation… Expand
