Hi, there: I have 4000 points to be plotted around two centers with standard deviation 1 and mean 0. The center of the points must be P(x1,y1,z1) and Q(x2,y2,z2). Anybody have idea how to do this? Please help me. Thank you.
Regards' S.Giri

cluster_P = bsxfun(@plus, [x1, y1, z1], randn(4000,3));
scatter3(cluster_P(:,1), cluster_P(:,2), cluster_P(:,3));
However, you need to clarify what it means to have standard deviation 1 and mean 0 when there are three dimensions to consider. Is the idea that the radius should be determined by randn() and that random angles should be taken?

The standard deviation determine the radius. Mean 0 tells that points distributed equally in positive and negative direction. No.of points in positive direction must be equal to points in negative directions. We can define radius but it must satisfy given conditions.
