# RandomComplex

 gives a pseudorandom complex number with real and imaginary parts in the range 0 to 1. gives a pseudorandom complex number in the rectangle with corners given by the complex numbers zmin and zmax. RandomComplex[zmax]gives a pseudorandom complex number in the rectangle whose corners are the origin and zmax. RandomComplex[range, n]gives a list of pseudorandom complex numbers. RandomComplex[range, {n1, n2, ...}]gives an array of pseudorandom complex numbers.
• RandomComplex chooses complex numbers with a uniform probability distribution in the rectangle specified.
• RandomComplex[range, WorkingPrecision->n] yields complex numbers with -digit precision. Leading or trailing digits in the generated number can turn out to be 0.
• RandomComplex gives a different sequence of pseudorandom reals whenever you run Mathematica. You can start with a particular seed using SeedRandom.
• A Method option to SeedRandom can be given to specify the pseudorandom generator used.
