I would like to generate a height field that has a user specified distribution of slopes. Generating a random field with Gaussian slope distribution is easy.

Is there a relatively simple way to generate non-Gaussian random fields in Mathematica?

    $\begingroup$ Please be a bit more specific. Height field over what? The real line or the plane? Do you know about RandomVariate? $\endgroup$ – Henrik Schumacher Oct 8 '18 at 19:04
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, height field in a plane. Of course you can generate heights that are distributed with whatever distribution you want. But I do not care about distribution of heights, but distribution of slopes. So, I want to generate a height field H(x, y) that has slopes (dH/dx, dH/dy) distributed based on specified distribution. $\endgroup$ – Ivan Oct 9 '18 at 1:19
