Summary form only given. Random number generators are one of the most common numerical library functions used in scientific applications. The standard random number generator provided within Java is fine for most purposes, however it does not adequately meet the needs of large-scale scientific applications, such as Monte Carlo simulations. Previous work has addressed some of these problems by extending the standard random API in Java and providing an implementation that includes a choice of… CONTINUE READING
