Hi All,

It is with great pleasure that I have posted (after months of intense tinkering and a little stroke of luck) a new algorithm (with variants) to generate random numbers. I have posted the two-part report on my web site. You can visit it and download the pdf files here and check the last entry at the bottom. There is also a link to download Matlab code that you can use. The first document explains in details the criteria I use to determine the goodness of random numbers. The study is meant to create algorithms that work with vintage calculators and even new one. The PRNG algorithms sure work well with PC applications. Remember that using your own random number generator makes your programs more portable across different machines and platforms.
