2. ### List of random number generators - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_random_number...

Random number generators are important in many kinds of technical applications, including physics, engineering or mathematical computer studies (e.g., Monte Carlo simulations), cryptography and gambling (on game servers ). This list includes many common types, regardless of quality or applicability to a given use case.

3. ### Random number generation - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_number_generation

There are two principal methods used to generate random numbers. The first method measures some physical phenomenon that is expected to be random and then compensates for possible biases in the measurement process. Example sources include measuring atmospheric noise, thermal noise, and other external electromagnetic and quantum phenomena.

4. ### Fortuna (PRNG) - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortuna_(PRNG)

Fortuna is a cryptographically secure pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) devised by Bruce Schneier and Niels Ferguson and published in 2003. It is named after Fortuna, the Roman goddess of chance. FreeBSD uses Fortuna for /dev/random and /dev/urandom is symbolically linked to it since FreeBSD 11. [1]

5. ### RDRAND - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RdRand

RDRAND. RDRAND (for "read random"; known as Intel Secure Key Technology, [1] previously known as Bull Mountain [2]) is an instruction for returning random numbers from an Intel on-chip hardware random number generator which has been seeded by an on-chip entropy source. [3] Intel introduced the feature around 2012, and AMD added support for the ...

6. ### Randomness test - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randomness_test

There have been a fairly small number of different types of (pseudo-)random number generators used in practice. They can be found in the list of random number generators, and have included: Linear congruential generator and Linear-feedback shift register Generalized Fibonacci generator Cryptographic generators Quadratic congruential generator

7. ### Global Consciousness Project - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Consciousness_Project

The Global Consciousness Project ( GCP, also called the EGG Project) is a parapsychology experiment begun in 1998 as an attempt to detect possible interactions of "global consciousness " with physical systems. The project monitors a geographically distributed network of hardware random number generators in a bid to identify anomalous outputs ...
