function [e] = sample_subspaces_multiD_geom_star(d,num_of_samples)
%Sampling from a random variable distributed uniformly on a d-dimensional star (=diagonals of a square).
%
%INPUT:
%	num_of_samples: number of samples to be generated.
%OUTPUT:
%   e: e(:,t) is the t^th sample. size(e,2) = num_of_samples.
%EXAMPLE:
%   e = sample_subspaces_multiD_geom_star(4,1000);
