GRAN6: Gauss procedure to generate Pareto-distributed random numbers
Generation of Pareto-distributed pseudo-random numbers using GAUSS (version 3.6 or later), by the inversion method. That is, generation of random variates that come from a density proportional to x^(-a-1), where a>0 and x>=b for some location parameter b>0. Zipf distribution is obtained when a=1.
