Random Number Generators : Metrics and Tests for Uniformity and Randomness

  title={Random Number Generators : Metrics and Tests for Uniformity and Randomness},
  author={E. Yfantis and J. Pedersen},
Random number generators are a small part of any computer simulation project. Yet they are the heart and the engine that drives the project. Often times software houses fail to understand the complexity involved in building a random number generator that will satisfy the project requirements and will be able to produce realistic results. Building a random number generator with a desirable periodicity, that is uniform, that produces all the random permutations with equal probability, and at… Expand
