A comparison of four pseudo random number generators implemented in Ada

William N. Graham
1992 ACM SIGSIM Simulation Digest  
Next, the numbers were checked for independence by means of a serial test. The code was then timed for a certain number of iterations. Finally, the reported periods of the generators are compared.  ...  The tests used to evaluate the generators were simple ones. First, a stream of random numbers generated were checked for equidistribution by means of a chi-square test.  ...  Jeffrey Brumfield at The University of Texas at Austin Computer Science Department and Steven Glicker, Lawrence Maturo and Gene Joe at The University of Texas at Austin Applied Research Laboratories for  ...
