FIG. 1.

Comparison between the theoretical distribution of from Eq. (6) and the generated random variates for isotropic relativistic Maxwellians with different values of . The top plot in each of the four panels shows the theoretical distribution in black with the computed distribution over-plotted in red. The bottom plot shows the ratio of the computed to theoretical distributions on a log scale ranging from 1/2 to 2. Note the different axis scales for each panel.

FIG. 2.

Comparison, in the same format as Figure 1 , between the theoretical distribution of from Eq. (18) and the generated random variates for drifting relativistic Maxwellians with different values of and . In panel (a), . Note the different axis scales for each panel.
