**Methods of Random Sampling Using Rejection**

Introduction We want to generate samples of a given density, $f(x)$. In this case, we can assume we already have a reliable way to generate samples from a uniform distribution, $\mathcal{U}[0,1]$. How do we know a random sample ($v$) comes from the $f(x)$ d...
