## Random polygon

This method simulates a random polygon. We choose random angles until . The coordinates of points are then given by where are independent random radii between 0 and 150.
(Note that the intervals of and are arbitrarily chosen.)

## Uniform distribution of points on the unit sphere

This method simulates random points on the unit sphere by sampling random angles theta in . The coordinates of points are then given by . The parameter defines the number of points and the radius of the sphere.

## Random beta polygon

This method simulates a beta polygon created by independent identically distributed random points with density

Here a short description of the simulation of the model:
* Choose the number of points * Choose a parameter * Sample random angles * Sample radii that follow the probability density: by using the inverse transform sampling:
– simply draw a random number uniformly from – then * Coordinates of points are then given by r*(cos(theta), sin(theta))
