Is it possible generate to have a non-random, systematically spaced sequence of numbers that is more or less "normal" in its distribution?
I know I can pull say 10 numbers randomly from a normal distribution in r using
rnorm(10). What I'd prefer for one application, if it is possible, is some sequence of ten (or N) numbers that is not random but rather has about the same characteristics (eg mean, variance, skewness and kurtosis, maybe others) as the random data.
Is this somehow possible or is there some reason one should never try this? If the former, I'd appreciate a hint for how one could code such a thing in R.
