Abstract

Two methods of generating pseudo-random numbers in a decimal computer are described. Methods of testing the sequences of generated numbers are discussed and the two methods of generation are compared to determine which method is superior for general usage. A computer routine to generate both uniformly and normally distributed numbers is presented, with a table of 9000 three digit numbers uniformly distributed on the unit (0 -1) interval.
