comment How to plot N points on the surface of a D-dimensional sphere roughly equidistant apart?
Sasha, when I generate those vectors, they will determine the randomness of the point locations. So, what is a good way to generate them so that for, let's say 2 points, they are on opposite poles? But please provide a method that works with any number of dimensions and any number of points. I'd prefer it to not be a table-lookup.

For the last method on that page, how would I generate Gaussian random variables so that the radius of the sphere is always the same for each generated point?

You mean if N = D, right? The simplex (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simplex) will solve the problem if N = D, but I need a solution for any N and any D.
