#5026054 Generate random perpendicular unit vector

Posted by Kepakiano on 27 January 2013 - 08:17 AM

This is what I would do:

1. Generate a random unit vector
2. Make it orthogonal to your given vector by using the Gram-Schmidt Process (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gram%E2%80%93Schmidt_process)

Edit: The snippet does not check, whether v and random u are linearly independent.
