Re: How to generate a condition (true or false) based on possibilities?

In this case, you have a total of 52 balls in the urn. The chance of picking a blue is 50/52, and a red is 2/52. The total probability is 50/52 + 2/52 = 52/52 = 1 (the ball will always be either blue...

Re: How to generate a condition (true or false) based on possibilities?

If you have the possibilities 0.8, 0.1, and 0.1 you think of them as three intervals,

1: 0.0 <= x < 0.8
2: 0.8 <= x < 0.9
3: 0.9 <= x < 1.0

Then you draw a random float x between 0 and 1, for...

Re: coming up with data structure for the algorithm

You don't have to sort anything. Of course you can store all distances and then sort them to find the shortest. But you really just need to keep track of one distance, the shortest_so_far. Each time...

Re: coming up with data structure for the algorithm

Do you want to find the shortest cell distance between two sites? Then you just calculate all possible cell distances one by one and keep the shortest so far. You don't need a data structure for that.

If the problem is that you want to co-sort the second array with the first, one way is to introduce a temporary std::vector of std:: pair.

In each std:: pair you combine a PiInfo object with its...
