  2. Random number generation - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_number_generation

    Random number generation is a process by which, often by means of a random number generator (RNG), a sequence of numbers or symbols that cannot be reasonably predicted better than by random chance is generated. This means that the particular outcome sequence will contain some patterns detectable in hindsight but unpredictable to foresight.

  3. Random seed - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_seed

    A pseudorandom number generator's number sequence is completely determined by the seed: thus, if a pseudorandom number generator is reinitialized with the same seed, it will produce the same sequence of numbers. The choice of a good random seed is crucial in the field of computer security.

  4. Generator - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generator

    Generator (computer programming), a routine that acts like an iterator; Pseudorandom number generator, a producer of random numbers; Code generator, part of a compiler; Natural-language generator, generating natural language from a machine representation system such as a knowledge base or a logical form; Random test generator, used in software ...

  5. Electric generator - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_generator

    It is also known as a unipolar generator, acyclic generator, disk dynamo, or Faraday disc. The voltage is typically low, on the order of a few volts in the case of small demonstration models, but large research generators can produce hundreds of volts, and some systems have multiple generators in series to produce an even larger voltage. [17]

  6. Rolling code - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_code

    Common PRNG (pseudorandom number generator) — preferably cryptographically secure — in both transmitter and receiver; Transmitter sends 'next' code in sequence; Receiver compares 'next' to its calculated 'next' code. A typical implementation compares within the next 256 codes in case receiver missed some transmitted keypresses.

  7. Permanent magnet synchronous generator - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permanent_magnet...

    A permanent magnet synchronous generator is a generator where the excitation field is provided by a permanent magnet instead of a coil. The term synchronous refers here to the fact that the rotor and magnetic field rotate with the same speed, because the magnetic field is generated through a shaft mounted permanent magnet mechanism and current is induced into the stationary armature.

  8. GNU Bison - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_bison

    GNU Bison, commonly known as Bison, is a parser generator that is part of the GNU Project. Bison reads a specification in the BNF notation (a context-free language ), [3] warns about any parsing ambiguities, and generates a parser that reads sequences of tokens and decides whether the sequence conforms to the syntax specified by the grammar.

    "Ben 10/Generator Rex: Heroes United" is an extended crossover special between Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Generator Rex. Taking the form of an extended episode of Generator Rex , with it having an appearance of Ben Tennyson from Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and it being written by Man of Action, the creator of both shows. [2]
