That's actually a pretty neat spreadsheet to illustrate why that
approach is wrong.
You generate a set of non-uniformly distributed random numbers by
applying a transformation function F(x)=sqrt(x), and you give a
probability density function f(x)=(2/3)*x^(2/3) (which I presume matches
the transformation function). So far so good.
But then you take those non-uniformly distributed random numbers and
apply a second transformation function, G(x)=x^n, and this time you fail
to account for the fact that this transformation again changes the
Been there, done that. Doesn't work, I can tell you from experience ;)
