I'm trying to do something very similar and I'm still confused on how to do it. Maybe what I'm doing is a bit different. Normally the random number generator has an equal probability of producing a number between 1 and zero. I would like to have the probability distribution fit the cosine squared function, with a shift. So the probability of getting a zero is the highest and the probability of getting pi/2 or pi/2 is zero. Does that make sense?
