>This function returns a random variate from the chi-squared distribution
with nu degrees of freedom. The distribution function is, 
>p(x) dx = {1 \over \Gamma(\nu/2) } (x/2)^{\nu/2 - 1} \exp(-x/2) dx

That should be

p(x) dx = {1 \over (2^{n/2} \Gamma(\nu/2)) } (x/2)^{\nu/2 - 1} \exp(-x/2) dx

I haven't checked if the code is correct.
