How to generate random numbers between -pi and pi

57 views (last 30 days)
i tried generating numbers with linspace(-pi,pi) and i get somewhat the correct numbers. But only for the first run of course. I need random values between -pi and pi for several runs, and all should be other numbers. the rand() function doesnt work with pi

Example 1: Generate values from the uniform distribution on the interval [a, b].
r = a + (b-a).*rand(100,1);
