LognormalDistribution Constructor (Double, Double)
Initializes a log-normal distribution.

Namespace:  Meta.Numerics.Statistics.Distributions
Assembly:  Meta.Numerics (in Meta.Numerics.dll) Version: 3.1.0.0 (3.1.0.0)
Syntax
public LognormalDistribution(
	double mu,
	double sigma
)

Parameters

mu
Type: SystemDouble
The mean of the underlying normal distribution.
sigma
Type: SystemDouble
The standard deviation of the underlying normal distribution.
Remarks

Note that the values of μ and σ parameters are not the mean and standard deviation of the log-normal distribution. They are the mean and standard deviation of their logrithms z = ln x. This is the standard method of characterizing a log-normal distribution.
