Input: Real numerical value, integer value
Result: A value from the binomial distribution with the given probability and number of trials. A new random deviate is generated each time step.
The binomial distribution describes the probability of a given number of positive outcomes occurring when a number n of trials are carried out, each with a certain probability p of a positive outcome.
This function is implemented using a pseudo-random sequence generator; notes regarding its behaviour can be found in the documentation for the rand_var function.
