example, at the rate of 10,000--15,000 per second in

The incorporation of successive improvements has led to
a procedure which is fairly easy to program, requires
little storage, 300--400 constants, is very fast (it
takes about as long to generate the normal $x$ as the
uniform $u$ from which it comes), and is completely
accurate, in the sense that in theory the procedure
returns a random variable with exactly the required
distribution; in practice the result is an
approximation influenced only by the capacity (word

collection of `states' with a particle moving from
state to state with certain probabilities, remaining in
each state a random time with an exponential

we consider the sojourn time of a particle, that is,

represent the required $X$ in the form: $ X = C (M +
U_1 + U_2 + U_3) $, some 97--99\% of the time, where c
is constant, $M$ is a discrete random variable taking
perhaps $8$ values, and the $U$'s are uniform random
variables; the other 1--3\% of the time, $X$ is
generated from a residual density by the rejection
technique. These two methods for producing $X$ are
combined in the proper proportions in order that the
resulting distribution for $X$ be correct. The method
is general in that it applies to a wide variety of
density functions. Programs based on this procedure are
very fast and require little computer storage space ---
typically, 18 constants and 20 instructions.",

portion of the circulating blood through a shunt

machines, artificial kidneys, and coiled tubes where
the blood may be exposed to radiation without danger to
body tissues. There is some probability theory
connected with such procedures, for the cells of the
blood are thoroughly mixed in the body, and hence the
number of times a blood cell passes through the shunt
is a random variable. Several papers have been written
to describe such systems by differential equations;
this paper discusses the problem directly in terms of
probability theory, finding the exact distribution of
the number of times a blood cell has passed through the
shunt and, in addition, a normal approximation which
makes calculation of accumulated doses a matter of
simple arithmetic.",

probability that a random normal point will fall in one
or more of the circles [spheres]. For $ k > 3 $ the
problem seems hopeless, (except for certain special
situations); the case for $ k = 3 $ is still unresolved
and is being worked on by a number of investigators,
and the case for $ k = 2 $ is solved completely in this

value when applied to actual problems arising in
tactical considerations, and some theoretical value, as
a method of attacking the problem for $ k \geq 3 $.",

to provide a composite with potentially better

out that an incomplete $\Gamma$ function routine is so
important that it should be a standard part of any
library of statistical subroutines. The paper goes on
to give another example of use of the incomplete
$\Gamma$ function: as a means for computer generation
of Poisson random variables. and, having urged wide use
of the incomplete $\Gamma$ function, proceeds with
development of a Poisson generator whose principal aim
is to avoid use of the very function it has previously
lauded. Occasional use of an accurate incomplete
$\Gamma$ routine is essential however, in order that
the composite method be exact.",

is O(n log n) while the worst-case complexity is $
O(n^2) $. Empirical results confirm that the algorithm

subtraction. It is one of a new class of generators

assumes that this is like sampling without replacement
from an urn. On the other hand, it is well known that
many people pick 'lucky' numbers such as 7 and 11 more
frequently than 'ordinary' numbers such as 17 or 26.
For some lotteries, information is available on the
frequencies with which players have chosen each of the
numbers from 1 to 49. This raises the interesting
question of finding distributions on the $ 49 \choose 6
$ possible ticket choices that will be consistent with
the frequencies specified for each of the elements. We
develop several methods for doing this; some of them
may be extended to the next stages of the problem, when
enough information is available from the Lottery to
specify frequencies of pairs or even triples, and one
seeks distributions on the 6-tuples consistent with
those frequencies.",

abstract = "This is an interesting article with direct application
in generating normal random variable by computer
programs. The suggested applications are related to
Monte Carlo simulation based on massively parallel
systems or supercomputers. The idea is to replace
larger programs with complicated computations and with
difficulties in accuracy controlling by simpler
arithmetic programs that use tabled constants. These
seem to be the normal evolution since memory becomes
cheaper and cheaper.\par
The authors compute the inverse of the cPhi function $$
c P h i(x) = (2 / \pi)^{1 / 2} \int^\infty_x \exp ( -
t^2 / 2) d t = u, $$ using a uniform random variable as
input and the truncated Taylor series development of
it. In order to increase the speed the coefficients of
the truncated Taylor series $$ x(u_0 + h) = x(u_0) +
x'(u_0) \cdot h + {1 \over 2} x''(u_0) \cdot h^2 + {1
\over 6} x'''(u_0) \cdot h^3, $$ are predetermined for
1024 points. And here comes another bright idea: the
1024 points are chosen based on the representation of
the uniform random variable in modern computers as
floating point variable of the form: $ u = 2^{-k} ((1 /
2) + (j / 64)) + 2^{-k} \cdot (m / 2^{24}) $ with $ 0
\le k & l t; 32 $, $ 0 \le j & l t; 32 $ and $ 0 \le m
& l t; 2^{18} $ and considering 32 bit
representation.\par
With this assumptions and the truncation to the third
power of $h$ of the Taylor series, the authors show
that the error does not exceed the limit of single
precision accuracy. Furthermore the calculations are
speeded up based on reducing multiplications. A number
of FORTRAN programs are also presented in order to
evaluate the complementary normal distribution function
cPhi (several versions) with great accuracy, create the
constant tables, and generate the normal distribution
variable. These simple programs give the user the
possibility to completely control the accuracy.",

you want a random real in [0,1) use UNI, or use IUNI

variables takes a decreasing density, cuts it into
three pieces, then, using area-preserving

A random point $ (x, y) $ from that rectangle is used
to provide a variate from the given density, most of
the time as $x$ itself or a linear function of $x$. The
decreasing density is usually the right half of a
symmetric density.\par
The Monty Python method has provided short and fast
generators for normal, $t$ and von Mises densities,
requiring, on the average, from $ 1.5 $ to $ 1.8 $
uniform variables. In this article, we apply the method
to non-symmetric densities, particularly the important
gamma densities. We lose some of the speed and
simplicity of the symmetric densities, but still get a
method for variates that is simple and fast enough to
provide beta variates in the form $ \gamma_a =
(\gamma_a + \gamma_b) $. We use an average of less than
$ 1.7 $ uniform variates to produce a gamma variate
whenever $ \alpha \geq 1 $. Implementation is simpler
and from three to five times as fast as a recent method
reputed to be the best for changing $ \alpha $ s.",

abstract = "We describe three tests of randomness --- tests that
many random number generators fail. In particular, all
congruential generators --- even those based on a prime
modulus --- fail at least one of the tests, as do many
simple generators, such as shift register and lagged
Fibonacci. On the other hand, generators that pass the
three tests seem to pass all the tests in the Diehard
Battery of Tests.\par
Note that these tests concern the randomness of a
generator's output as a sequence of independent,
uniform 32-bit integers. For uses where the output is
converted to uniform variates in $ [0, 1) $, potential
flaws of the output as integers will seldom cause
problems after the conversion. Most generators seem to
be adequate for producing a set of uniform reals in $
[0, 1) $, but several important applications. notably
in cryptography and number theory --- for example,
establishing probable primes, complexity of factoring
algorithms, random partitions of large integers --- may
require satisfactory performance on the kinds of tests
we describe here.",

that provides $ \mbox {Pr}(D_n < d) $ with 13--15 digit
accuracy for $n$ ranging from $2$ to at least $ 16000

form, and because computing time can become excessive
for probabilities $ > 0.999 $ with $n$'s of several
thousand, we provide a quick approximation that gives
accuracy to the 7th digit for such cases.",

naivety in the extreme. Application, in the present

(sometimes called congruential or multiplicative) type
are discussed and results of statistical tests
performed on specific examples of this type are
presented. Tests were patterned after the methods of
MacLaren and Marsaglia (M\&M). The main result
presented is the discovery of several power residue
generators which performed well in these tests. This is
important because, of all the generators using standard
methods (including power residue) that were tested by
M\&M, none gave satisfactory results. The overall
results here provide further evidence for their
conclusion that the types of tests usually encountered
in the literature do not provide an adequate index of
the behavior of n-tuples of consecutively generated
numbers. In any Monte Carlo or simulation problem where
n supposedly independent random numbers are required at
each step, this behavior is likely to be important.
Finally, since the tests presented here differ in
certain details from those of M\&M, some of their
generators were retested as a check. A cross-check
shows that results are compatible; in particular, if a
generator failed one of their tests badly, it also
failed the present author's corresponding test badly.",

\ldots{} Runs made using the SWC generator gave better
results, but even these data showed noticeable
systematic errors which had the opposite sign from
those produced using R250. In contrast, data obtained
using the simple 32-bit congruential generator CONG
produced answers which were correct to within the error
bars. Even use of the mixed generator SWCW did not
yield results which were free of bais, although the
systematic errors were much smaller.''\par From page
3384: ``extensive Monte Carlo simulations on an Ising
model for which the exact answers are known have shown
that ostensibly high quality random number generators
may lead to subtle, but dramatic, systematic errors for
some algorithms, but not others. Since there is no
reason to believe that the model which we have
investigated has any special idiosyncrasies, these
results offer another stern warning about the need to
very carefully test the implementation of new
algorithms. In particular, this means that a specific
algorithm must be tested together with the random
number generator being used {\em regardless} of the
tests which the generator has passed.''",

In this article, we analyze the theoretical properties
of xorshift generators, search for the best ones with

them empirically. We find that the vast majority of
xorshift generators with only three xorshift
operations, including those having good
equidistribution, fail several simple statistical

claimed cryptographic security for the KISS generator,
but others have made the intellectual leap and claimed
that it is of cryptographic quality. In this paper we
show a number of reasons why the generator does not
meet some of the KISS authors' claims, why it is not
suitable for use as a stream cipher, and that it is not
cryptographically secure. Our best attack requires
about 70 words of generated output and a few hours of
computation to recover the initial state. In early
2011, G. Marsaglia posted a new version of KISS, which
falls to a simple divide-and-conquer attack.",
