Examples of such deficiencies include: %%% %%% * lack of randomness, or correlations, in %%% sequences of bits within single numbers; %%% %%% * correlations between number subsequences; %%% %%% * correlations at constant stepsizes in the %%% number sequences (see the famous paper %%% Marsaglia:1968:RNF); %%% %%% * short periods that are too readily %%% exhausted (in 2010, periods of $2^{32}$ can %%% be traversed in a few seconds, and periods %%% of $2^{64}$ can be covered in about 30 %%% minutes on one million cores: see entry %%% Salmon:2011:PRN); %%% %%% * fragility with respect to user-specific %%% initial seeds, with some seeds producing %%% good sequences, and other seeds, bad %%% sequences, usually without warning; %%% %%% * fragility with respect to internal generator %%% algorithm parameters (for example, with the %%% long-used linear congruential generators, %%% just one satisfactory 32-bit multiplier was %%% found for every 1,300,000 multipliers %%% tested; see entries Fishman:1986:EAM and %%% Park:1988:RNG); %%% %%% * fragility with respect to nonunit steps in %%% the sequences (for a linear congruential %%% generator, sampling every n-th value can be %%% shown to be equivalent to a different %%% choice of multiplier and constant, and that %%% choice may exhibit strong correlations, %%% even if the original parameters have been %%% shown to produce largely-satisfactory %%% sequences: see entry Marsaglia:1968:RNF, %%% and page 12 of entry Coddington:1997:RNG); %%% %%% * impracticality for parallel computation %%% because of the need for excessive internal %%% state (see entry Salmon:2011:PRN); %%% %%% * inability to produce independent %%% simultaneous streams of random numbers from %%% the generator, as is needed in parallel %%% computations; %%% %%% * lack of algorithm details; %%% %%% * lack of cross-platform portability, such as %%% through dependence on low-level %%% architecture-dependent (and even %%% chip-model-dependent) details of computer %%% arithmetic; %%% %%% * lack of source-code access; %%% %%% * lack of knowledge of generator period, %%% generator interval, and generator interval %%% end points; %%% %%% * difficulty of implementing in common %%% programming languages; %%% %%% * need for multiple-precision arithmetic, %%% or excessive computation for a single %%% random number; %%% %%% * large Monte Carlo computations in physics %%% and chemistry have sometimes been shown to %%% be extremely sensitive to long-range %%% corrections in sequences of random numbers, %%% and may even converge to an incorrect %%% answer with one generator, and a correct %%% result with another (see entries %%% Coldwell:1974:CDS, Kalle:1984:PRN, %%% Berdnicov:1991:MCS, Ferrenberg:1992:MCS, %%% Grassberger:1993:CGR, Kankaala:1993:BLC, %%% Selke:1993:CFM, Coddington:1994:ARN, %%% Holian:1994:PNG, Vattulainen:1994:PTR, %%% Compagner:1995:OCR, Schmid:1995:EMC, %%% Vattulainen:1995:CSS, Vattulainen:1995:PMT, %%% Bromley:1996:QNG, Coddington:1997:RNG, %%% Shchur:1997:CMC, Shchur:1997:SDR, %%% DSouza:1998:SBD, Gammel:1998:HRR, %%% Resende:1998:URN, Mertens:2003:EPR, %%% Bauke:2004:PRC, Mertens:2004:EPR, %%% Ossola:2004:SED, Hongo:2010:RNG, %%% Click:2011:QRN, and Ghersi:2017:CQR). %%% %%% An ideal pseudorandom-number generator must %%% be able to produce identical sequences on all %%% platforms on which it can be made to run. %%% Otherwise, it is impossible to reproduce a %%% numerical experiment, violating one of the %%% key tenets of the scientific method.

As the editor, Ernest Rubin, says, %%% these are all random, but some are more %%% random than others. The question has been %%% asked `Can a table of random digits have just %%% one misprint?' This will be left as an %%% exercise for the reader.'' %%% %%% Several entries in this bibliography are for %%% publications that describe physical devices %%% for generating random numbers from haphazard %%% phenomena, such as acoustic, electrical, or %%% optical noise, lava lamps, quantum %%% interference, and radioactive decay. While %%% such numbers are likely to be humanly %%% ``unpredictable'', they are not necessarily %%% ``uniformly random'' in the sense that large %%% collections of random numbers on [0,1] should %%% be uniformly distributed over the unit %%% interval, and have a limiting average of 1/2: %%% tests of some of those devices have shown %%% biases in favor of lower or higher values. %%% %%% Entries Kubota:1995:DRE, Mikov:1996:LSA, %%% Gentle:1990:CIR, and Saiprasert:2010:OHA %%% discuss rounding errors when random numbers %%% from one range are converted to numbers in %%% another range. %%% %%% See entries Gentle:1990:CIR, %%% Mascagni:2000:ASS, and Brent:2006:FRR for %%% good discussions of desirable properties for %%% algorithms and software for generation of %%% random numbers. %%% %%% The question of when a sequence of digits, in %%% some specified base, is random was apparently %%% first raised in 1909 (see entry %%% Borel:1909:PDL, and the remark in entry %%% Borel:1914:LTF). Such numbers are called %%% ``normal numbers'', but only a few have been %%% proved to have that property, the first %%% perhaps being Champernowne's number (see %%% entry Champernowne:1933:CDN). The constant %%% pi is believed to be a normal number, but the %%% proof remains elusive; see Chapter 4 of entry %%% Borwein:2004:MEP. Normality does NOT mean %%% that short digit sequences are random: the %%% sequences 0123456789 and 7777777777 both %%% occur within the first 22,900,000,000 decimal %%% digits of pi. The six-digit sequence 999999 %%% appears at the 762nd decimal place, and is %%% called the ``Feynman point'', after Physics %%% Nobel laureate Richard Feynman: for %%% background, see %%% %%% http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feynman_point %%% %%% Most algorithmic random-number generators %%% produce a sequence of distinct integers that %%% eventually repeats, and the count of values %%% produced to that point is called the %%% ``period''. Adjacent numbers are never %%% identical, unlike the digits of a normal %%% number. %%% %%% For testing the quality of random-number %%% generators, most of the early recommendations %%% (e.g., see extensive coverage in %%% Knuth:1997:SA) have the problem that while %%% they may readily identify really bad %%% generators, they are rarely helpful in %%% distinguishing the mediocre from the good, %%% and good from the superb. What is instead %%% needed is a suite of several sophisticated %%% tests, and experience with those tests on a %%% variety of generators. Notable examples of %%% such test facilities include the Marsaglia %%% Diehard Test Suite (entries %%% Marsaglia:1985:CVR and Marsaglia:1996:DBT), %%% the L'Ecuyer/Simard TestU01 suite (entries %%% LEcuyer:2001:TSL, LEcuyer:2002:TSL, %%% LEcuyer:2006:TSL, and LEcuyer:2007:TCL), the %%% Marsaglia/Tsang tuftest suite (entry %%% Marsaglia:2002:SDP), and the NIST 800-22 %%% suite (entry Rukhin:2001:STS). See also %%% entry Haramoto:2009:AST for a discussion of %%% how adaptive testing can be used to %%% distinguish test failure (indicated by %%% p-values close to 0 or 1) from algorithm %%% failure. %%% %%% Such test facilities need to be available at %%% all end-user sites where random-number %%% generator code is compiled, used, or written, %%% so that researchers can verify for themselves %%% whether the generator that they are using has %%% the expected properties of randomness. %%% Subtle differences in compiler %%% code-generation order, compiler errors, and %%% model-dependent hardware variations, can all %%% be sources of outright generator failure, or %%% worse (because the failure might not be %%% detected), substandard quality. In %%% particular, it is essential to record in %%% program output the initial seeds, as well as %%% short selected sequences of random numbers, %%% such as the first and last 100 numbers %%% generated in a run. Also, no single %%% simulation should be trusted until it has %%% been compared with results obtained from one %%% or more completely-different generators. %%% %%% Researchers and software designers who %%% contemplate using, or producing, random %%% number generators for serious, and %%% widespread, use need to be aware of the %%% impact of their algorithm choice on the %%% reliability of results of models based on %%% random numbers. For a story of how an entire %%% field of research was put at risk by a poor %%% choice in a widely-used software package, see %%% entry Umlauft:2009:GNS. %%% %%% In this bibliographer's view, relatively few %%% of the many journals in which random-number %%% algorithms have been proposed have been found %%% to be generally-reliable sources in this %%% area. Examples of recommended journals %%% include the ones abbreviated j-CACM, %%% j-IBM-JRD, j-IBM-SYS-J, j-JACM, %%% j-J-COMPUT-APPL-MATH, j-PARALLEL-COMPUTING, %%% j-TOMACS, and j-TOMS, all of whose %%% random-number articles should be present in %%% this bibliography. %%% %%% While there are many authors of the %%% publications listed in this bibliography, a %%% few stand out by having made large numbers of %%% important, influential, and insightful %%% contributions. They include George %%% Marsaglia, Pierre L'Ecuyer, Juergen %%% Eichenauer-Herrmann, Harald Niederreiter, and %%% Richard P. Brent. Their deep understanding, %%% and clear writing, on the problems of %%% generating and testing pseudorandom numbers %%% is worthy of study. See also Marsaglia's %%% publication bibliography at %%% %%% http://www.math.utah.edu/pub/bibnet/authors/m/ %%% %%% At version 0.56, this file was extended with %%% the 148 bibliography entries given in a fine %%% survey \cite{Hull:1962:RNG}; its authors %%% report on their first page: %%% %%% ``The bibliography is intended to be %%% complete with respect to references %%% concerned with the generation of random %%% numbers on computers. It contains %%% substantially all such references to the %%% open literature, as well as many %%% references to government and company %%% reports. In addition it contains a number %%% of references concerning each of the %%% related topics which are considered in %%% this paper.'' %%% %%% The numbered entries from that bibliography %%% are identified by HDnumber values in entries %%% in this file. %%% %%% While it is impossible to claim completeness %%% in a subject-specific bibliography, their %%% work nevertheless gives a good survey of what %%% was known about computer generation of %%% pseudo-random numbers in early 1962. Since %%% then, the literature on the subject has %%% exploded, and covers far more material than %%% we can usefully collect here. In particular, %%% the unavoidable correlations in congruential %%% generators were not known until six years %%% later (Marsaglia:1968:RNF), and the %%% cryptographic insecurities of many generators %%% were not even considered by Hull and Dobell %%% in 1962 (see Shi:1975:SRP, Reeds:1977:CRN, %%% Reeds:1979:CMC, Plumstead:1982:ISG, %%% Plumstead:1983:ISP, Blum:1984:HGC, %%% Frieze:1984:LCG, Knuth:1985:DLC, %%% Stern:1987:SLC, Frieze:1988:RTI, %%% Lagarias:1988:UEP, Shi:1988:SRP %%% Boyar:1989:ISPa, Boyar:1989:ISPb, %%% Krawczyk:1990:HPC, Brickell:1992:CSR, %%% Krawczyk:1992:HPC, Schneier:1996:ACP, %%% Bach:1998:EPM, Marsaglia:2003:RNG, %%% Contini:2005:SAA, Gutierrez:2007:ISP, %%% Rose:2011:KBT, and Gutierrez:2013:PML). %%% %%% The annotated bibliographies of Sowey %%% (Sowey:1972:CCB, Sowey:1978:SCB, %%% Sowey:1986:TCB) contain 300 references from %%% 1927 to 1971 (6.7/year), 130 references from %%% 1972 to 1976 (26/year), and 300 references %%% from 1977--1984 (37/year), demonstrating the %%% publication growth. Entry Page:1967:GPR %%% also contains a bibliography of earlier work, %%% and entry Sahai:1980:SSB supplements Sowey's %%% work. Another early bibliography is entry %%% Nance:1972:BRN. %%% %%% A search of the IEEE eXplore database for the %%% decade 2000--2009 found 522 articles with %%% titles containing 'pseudo-random', %%% `pseudorandom', and `pseudo random', or about %%% 52/year. The MathSciNet database shows about %%% 31/year for that period. %%% %%% A Google Scholar search for the same period %%% finds 1130 article titles with %%% `pseudorandom', 1400 with `pseudo-random', %%% 1480 with `pseudo random', and 846 with %%% `random number generator', or about 485/year. %%% %%% Warning: Cryptographic applications of random %%% numbers may have quite different requirements %%% than modeling, sampling, and simulation do, %%% and sequence reproducibility is likely to be %%% undesirable, because the random numbers are %%% used to generate secret, and unguessable, %%% cryptographic keys. It is possible that even %%% a limited sequence of random values from an %%% algorithmic generator can be used to reveal %%% properties and parameters of that generator, %%% and thus allow prediction of past and future %%% values. Such a crack has already been %%% demonstrated for linear congruential %%% generators: see the remarks above on %%% cryptographic insecurities of random-number %%% streams. Attacks on other algorithms have %%% also been demonstrated: see entries %%% Kannan:1988:PFN and Just:1990:IRA. Instead, %%% hardware-assisted sources of truly random %%% numbers may be needed. Examples include the %%% Intel AES-NI instruction-set extension (see %%% entry Salmon:2011:PRN), the Intel RdRand %%% instruction (see entry Taylor:2011:DR), the %%% pseudodevices /dev/random and /dev/urandom on %%% various Unix flavors, and cryptographic %%% accelerator boards available from some %%% hardware vendors. Just because the random %%% numbers come from a physical device does NOT %%% mean that they are necessarily uniformly %%% distributed, or pass tests of randomness: %%% see, for example, entry Tsoi:2003:CFB. %%% %%% Entries in this bibliography that discuss %%% generation of random numbers from physical %%% sources have the phrase ``true random numbers %%% from physical sources'' in their keywords %%% values.

[The probability that the total frequency determined by a number exists and is equal to $ 1 / 10 $ is set to unity. The likelihood that the frequency of the ten digits exists and is equal to $ 1 / 10 $ for each value is also unity. When the condition above is satisfied by a decimal fraction, we say that the number equal to this fraction is simply normal to the base $ 10 $. A simply-normal number is thus characterized by the fact that, $ c_0, c_1, c_2, \ldots {}, c_8, c_9 $ representing the respective number of times that the digits $ 0, 1, 2, \ldots {}, 8, 9 $ among the first $n$ decimals, each of the ratios $ c_0 / n, c_1 / n, c_1 / n, \ldots {}, c_8 / n, c_9 / n $ has the limit $ 1 / 10 $ when $n$ increases without limit.]", remark-2 = "Submitted from Paris on 3 November 1908.", } @Book{Borel:1914:LTF, author = "{\'E}mile Borel", title = "Le{\c{c}}ons sur la Th{\'e}orie des Fonctions.

On pages 182--216, this book introduced the notion of a normal number: roughly, one whose digits are random. From \cite[page 242]{Kannan:1988:PFN}: ``When are the bits of a real number random? (The phrase 'the bits of a real number' will mean the binary expansion of the fractional part of the number.) The classical definition was provided by Borel in 1909 \cite{Borel:1909:PDL,Borel:1914:LTF}. The gist of it follows: Define a real number $a$ to be normal with respect to the base $2$ if for any natural number $k$, each of the $ 2^k $ possible $0$--$1$ strings of length $k$ occur with equal probability in the bits of $a$. A similar definition can be made for other bases. It was not difficult to show that most real numbers are normal. It was shown by Champernowne \cite{Champernowne:1933:CDN} in 1933 that the real number $ a_0 $ which equals the infinite decimal $ .123456789101112 \ldots {} $ (whose digits are obtained by juxtaposing the digits of the integers $ 1, 2, 3, 4, \ldots {} $ ) is normal to the base $ 10 $. Copeland and Erdos generalized this to any basis and a class of reals including $ a_0 $ and $ a_1 = 0.2357111317 \ldots {} $ whose digits are obtained by juxtaposing the digits of successive primes.''", } @Article{Weyl:1916:GZM, author = "H.

Special attention is given to the problem of generating random numbers. The author's proposal for generating a sequence of ``random'' 8 decimal numbers $ u_n $ is to start with some number $ u_0 \neq 0 $, multiply it by 23, and subtract the two digit overflow on the left from the two right hand digits to obtain a new number $ u_1 $. By repeating this process he generates a sequence $ u_n $ which he shows has a repetition period of 5,882,352. An IBM 602A was used to generate 5000 numbers of such a sequence. Four standard tests (unspecified) were applied to check the ``randomness'' and the sequence passed all four.

When an electronic computer is used it is desirable to arrange for the generation of such normal deviates within the machine itself rather than to rely on tables. Pseudo random numbers can be generated by a variety of methods within the machine and the purpose of this note is to give what is believed to be a new method for generating normal deviates from independent random numbers. This approach can be used on small as well as large scale computers. A detailed comparison of the utility of this approach with other known methods (such as: (1) the inverse Gaussian function of the uniform deviates, (2) Teichroew's approach, (3) a rational approximation such as that developed by Hastings, (4) the sum of a fixed number of uniform deviates and (5) rejection-type approach), has been made elsewhere [1] by one of the authors (M.

Upon reflection one is led to inquire whether there are more physical constants with low order first significant digits than high. Actual counts by Benford [2] show that not only is this the case but that it seems to be an empirical truth that whenever one has a large body of physical data, Farmer's Almanac, Census Reports, Chemical Rubber Handbook, etc., the proportion of these data with first significant digit $n$ or less is approximately $ \log_{10}(n + 1) $. Any reader formerly unaware of this ``peculiarity'' will find an actual sampling experiment wondrously tantalizing. Thus, for example, approximately $ 0.7 $ of the physical constants in the Chemical Rubber Handbook begin with $4$ or less ($ \log_{10}(4 + 1) = 0.699 $ ).

Contrary to suspicion this is a non-trivial mathematical result, for the variable $n$ is discrete.''.\par From p. 1230: ``The foregoing results bear on questions of round-off in computing machines. Since $ d(u v) = u d v + v d u $, the error resulting from multiplying two rounded numbers will be governed primarily by the first significant digits of the two numbers being multiplied. Now the distribution of first significant digits, favoring as it does low order digits, tends to produce less error than would be the case if first significant digits were uniform as has sometimes been assumed.''\par Cited in \cite{Sterbenz:1974:FPC}.", } @Article{Rao:1961:GRP, author = "C.

These two methods for producing $X$ are combined in the proper proportions in order that the resulting distribution for $X$ be correct.

With this tool it is possible to understand and predict relevant statistical properties of such generators and compare and evaluate such methods. Many such analyses and comparisons have been carried out. The performance of these methods as implemented on differing computers is also studied. The main practical conclusions of the study are: (a) Such a priori analysis and prediction of statistical behavior of uniform random number generators is feasible. (b) The commonly used multiplicative congruence method of generation is satisfactory with careful choice of the multiplier for computers with an adequate ($ \geq \tilde $ 35-bit) word length.

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.

The existence of many containing sets of parallel hyperplanes was easily established, but proof that the number of hyperplanes was small required a result of Minkowski from the geometry of numbers --- a symmetric, convex set of volume 2 to the nth power must contain at least two points with integral coordinates. The present paper takes a different approach to establishing the course lattice structure of congruential generators. It gives a simple, self-contained proof that points in $n$-space produced by the general congruential generator $ r_(i + 1)$ is identically equal to $ a(r_i) + b \bmod m$ must fall on a lattice with unit-cell volume at least $m$ to the power $ (n - 1)$.

This generator has relatively short period with respect to the size of its seed. However, the short period is more than made up for with the huge number of full-period cycles it contains. These different full period cycles are called equivalence classes. We show how to enumerate the equivalence classes and how to compute seeds to select a given equivalence class, In addition, we present some theoretical measures of quality for this generator when used in parallel. Next, we conjecture on the size of these measures of quality for this generator. Extensive empirical evidence supports this conjecture. In addition, a probabilistic interpretation of these measures leads to another conjecture similarly supported by empirical evidence.

The setting has as its basis a set A of structures to be searched or tried and a performance function u:A->real numbers. Within this setting it is determined how to allocate trials to a set of random variables so as to maximise expected performances. This result is then transformed into a criterion against which to measure the performance of a robust and easily implemented set of algorithms called reproductive plans.

A second criterion, extending these limitations to multidimensional uniformity, is also defined. A sequence possessing both properties is said to be asymptotically random as no other sequence of the same period could be more random in these respects. An algorithm is presented which, for any Tausworthe sequence based on a primitive trinomial over GF(2), establishes how closely or otherwise the conditions necessary for the criteria are achieved. Given that the necessary conditions are achieved, the conditions sufficient for the first criterion are derived from Galois theory and always apply. For the second criterion, however, the period must be prime. An asymptotically random 23-bit number sequence of astronomic period, $ 2^{607} - 1 $, is presented. An initialization program is required to provide 607 starting values, after which the sequence can be generated with a three-term recurrence of the Fibonacci type. In addition to possessing the theoretically demonstrable randomness properties associated with Tausworthe sequences, the sequence possesses equidistribution and multidimensional uniformity properties vastly in excess of anything that has yet been shown for conventional congruentially generated sequences. It is shown that, for samples of a size it is practicable to generate, there can exist no purely empirical test of the sequence as it stands capable of distinguishing between it and an $ \infty $-distributed sequence. Bounds for local nonrandomness in respect of runs above (below) the mean and runs of equal numbers are established theoretically.
