Two main orientations are considered for the quadrilaterals, for both of which
a corresponding instance of the `QuadrilateralSampler` class is created.
For example, we instantiate the sampler class for the second orientation with:
For example, we instantiate an instance of this class by writing:
using QuadSampler = QuadrilateralSampler<worldDimension>;
static constexpr int worldDimension = 3;
using ctype = double;
using Distro = std::normal_distribution<ctype>;
QuadSampler quadSampler2(makeUniformPointSampler(domain), // use a new point sampler instance!

Distro(toRadians(0.0), toRadians(5.0)), // strike angle: mean value & standard deviation

the quadrilaterals are sampled. Here we use uniformly sampled points in the unit
cube, which is represented by an instance of the `Box` class, stored in the
variable `domain`. The second and third arguments define the distributions for
the strike and dip angle, where in this case we use uniform distributions with
the strike and dip angle (for details see the [class documentation][2]), where in this case we use uniform distributions with
a mean value of 0° and a standard deviation of 5°. The fourth argument is the
distribution to be used for sampling the edge lengths, while the last argument
defines a minimum value below which the edge length must not fall.
The quadrilaterals are then sampled from the two samplers `quadSampler1` and
In the example, the quadrilaterals are sampled from the two samplers `quadSampler1` and
`quadSampler2`, using the `()` operator:
auto quad = sampleIntoSet1 ? quadSampler1() : quadSampler2();
