Random Numbers
DIEHARD - random number validation DIEHARD: a battery of tests for random number generators developed by George Marsaglia. Random Numbers fall mainly in the planes. Also available: CD-ROM of really random numbers (Apr 2003)
Mersenne Twister - A random number generator Mersenne Twister (MT) is a pseudorandom number generator developped by Matsumoto and Nishimura. Far longer period and far higher order of equidistribution than any other implemented generators (2^19937-1). LGPL in C. (Apr 2003)
Newran - C++ Random Number Library The aim is to provide reasonably efficient methods from the standard distributions. Distributions directly supported are uniform, normal, chi-squared, exponential, gamma, Cauchy, Pareto, Poisson, binomial, negative binomial. (Apr 2002)
NHSE Random Number Resource Page Information about random number generators and pointers to software for generating pseudo-random numbers on high-performance computers and testing the randomness properties of these generators. (Apr 2003)
Really Random Numbers - based on white noise Really Random Numbers uses a real-time number generation process based on white noise in the sound card. Passes virtually all statistical tests of randomness and beats biased and predictable pseudo-random number generators. Win32. $99 (Apr 2003)
