**Math::Random::MT - The Mersenne Twister PRNG**

The Mersenne Twister is a pseudorandom number generator developed by Makoto Matsumoto and Takuji Nishimura. It is described in their paper at <URL:http://www.math.keio.ac.jp/~nisimura/random/doc/mt.ps>. This algorithm has a very uniform distribution ...

The Mersenne Twister is a fast pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) that is capable of providing large volumes (> 10^6004) of "high quality" pseudorandom data to applications that may exhaust available "truly" random data sources or system-provided P...

JDHEDDEN/Math-Random-MT-Auto-6.23 - 27 Nov 2018 03:25:49 UTC**Math::Random::MT::Perl - Pure Perl Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator**

Pure Perl implementation of the Mersenne Twister algorithm. Mersenne Twister is a 32 bit pseudorandom number generator developed by Makoto Matsumoto and Takuji Nishimura. The algorithm is characterised by a very uniform distribution but is not crypto...

CERNEY/Graphics-VTK-4.0.001 - 01 Feb 2003 15:47:39 UTC**Math::Random::OO - Consistent object-oriented interface for generating random numbers**

CPAN contains many modules for generating random numbers in various ways and from various probability distributions using pseudo-random number generation algorithms or other entropy sources. (The "SEE ALSO" section has some examples.) Unfortunately, ...

DAGOLDEN/Math-Random-OO-0.22 - 09 Jun 2013 19:08:46 UTC**Math::Random::Cauchy - Random numbers following a Cauchy PDF**

This module transforms uniformly spaced random numbers into random numbers that follow the Cauchy Probability Density Function (*PDF*). A more general transformation method is implemented in Math::Random::AcceptReject. The algorithm is from Blobel et...

This is a bundle of modules related to random numbers. Please have a look at Bundle::Math. If you would like to see a specific module included in a future version of this bundle, please send me an email or use rt.cpan.org....

SMUELLER/Bundle-Math-Random-1.02 - 11 Jul 2005 21:45:32 UTC**Math::Random::ISAAC - Perl interface to the ISAAC PRNG algorithm**

As with other Pseudo-Random Number Generator (PRNG) algorithms like the Mersenne Twister (see Math::Random::MT), this algorithm is designed to take some seed information and produce seemingly random results as output. However, ISAAC (Indirection, Shi...

JAWNSY/Math-Random-ISAAC-1.004 - 18 Feb 2011 02:34:58 UTC**Math::SimpleHisto::XS - Simple histogramming, but kinda fast**

This module implements simple 1D histograms with fixed or variable bin size. The implementation is mostly in C with a thin Perl layer on top. If this module isn't powerful enough for your histogramming needs, have a look at the powerful-but-experimen...

SMUELLER/Math-SimpleHisto-XS-1.30 - 23 May 2014 05:54:21 UTC**Math::Prime::Util::GMP - Utilities related to prime numbers and factoring, using GMP**

A module for number theory in Perl using GMP. This includes primality tests, getting primes in a range, factoring, and more. While it certainly can be used directly, the main purpose of this module is for Math::Prime::Util. That module will automatic...

This module is a straight forward implementation of Xorshift PRNG proposed by G. Marsaglia in 2003. Note that the algorithm is extremely fast and passes the Diehard test <http://www.stat.fsu.edu/pub/diehard/> though, is not reliable enough statistica...

SEKIA/Math-Random-Xorshift-0.05 - 22 Dec 2010 06:44:26 UTC**Math::Random::AcceptReject - Acceptance-Rejection PDF transformations**

This module implements acceptance-rejection transformations of uniformly distributed random numbers to mostly arbitrary probability density functions (*PDF*s). Note that whereas J. von Neumann's algorithm can transform from arbitrary source PDFs to a...
