### How can one use a probability distribution to sample from a population

Let us assume that we have a population and we interested in specific property of each element of this population. Let us assume further that this property follows a normal distribution X ~ P(M,Sigma)...
Let $G = (V,E)$ be a directed bipartite graph with $V = \{I \cup O\}$ where $\left\vert{I}\right\vert = n$ and $\left\vert{O}\right\vert = m$. All the edges start from a vertex in $I$ and end on a ...
