Improving the Quality of Random Number Generators by Applying a Simple Ratio Transformation [article]

Michael Kolonko, Zijun Wu, Feng Gu
2016 arXiv   pre-print
It is well-known that the quality of random number generators can often be improved by combining several generators, e.g. by summing or subtracting their results.  ...  Thus the additional effort to produce a second random number and to calculate the ratio allows to increase the quality of available random number generators.  ...  The basis of these simulation tools is a (pseudo-) random input provided by a random number generator.  ...
