Pseudorandom Number Generation: Impossibility and Compromise

  title={Pseudorandom Number Generation: Impossibility and Compromise},
  author={Makoto Matsumoto and Mutsuo Saito and Hiroshi Haramoto and Takuji Nishimura},
  journal={J. UCS},
Pseudorandom number generators are widely used in the area of simulation. Defective generators are still widely used in standard library programs, although better pseudorandom number generators such as the Mersenne Twister are freely avail-
