Drawing matrices with standard normal entries is so common and having to write the functor manually is such a pain (see stackoverflow.com/questions/6142576/sample-from-multivariate-normal-gaussian-distribution-in-c). Could a
DenseBase::Gaussian be added to generate matrices with standard normal entries.
Honestly, given how tedious it is to create new
NullaryExprs it'd be really useful to be able to generate matrices according to all of the distributions that C++ handles in the random library (normal, Poisson, Bernoulli, binomial, etc.).
I don't think this is too hard to implement, it's basically just redoing
Random for the different distributions, however, I'm new to the project and wanted to get peoples' opinions.
