Uniformity tests based on a discrete form of entropy are introduced and studied in the context of empirical testing of uniform random number generators. Comparisons are made with tests based on the Pearson chi-square statistic. Numerical results are provided and several currently used generators fail the tests. The linear congruential and nonlinear(More)
Based on an ensemble-theoretical definition of randomness and on the full hierarchy of correlation coefficients, a general strategy for the generation of random numbers is described. Use is made of well-tempered pseudorandom sequences, in which the remaining correlations are of very high order or cover extreme distances and thus are beyond the reach of(More)
