Dear all,
All of this talk about different methods of generating
pseudo random deviates raises the question:
Are there m-files publicly available for testing these
generators for serial correlation and other problems?
With such tests, one might be able to more
intelligently evaluate the tradeoff between quality
of pseudo random deviates and speed, portability of
code, etc.
If I remember right, Donald Knuth discusses such tests
at length in one of his Art of Computer Programming
volumes. Someone must have implemented them.
