Motivated by numerous applications in Monte Carlo techniques and as of late, in deriving non dominated solutions in multi-objective optimization problems, this article addresses generating uniform random variables (λi, λi ≥ 0, i = 1,..., n) over a simplex in ℝ2 (n ≥ 2), i.e., Σi=1 n λi = 1. In this article, first, conditional distribution of λi where Σi=1 n λi = 1 is derived and then inverse method is applied to generate random variables.
