RandomNumbers.jl is a package of Julia, in which several random number generators (RNGs) are provided.

If you use the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL), VSL.jl is also a good choice for random number generation.

Installation

This package is registered. The stable version of this package requires Julia 0.7+. You can install it by:

(v1.1) pkg> add RandomNumbers

It is recommended to run the test suites before using the package:

(v1.0) pkg> test RandomNumbers

RNG Families

There are four RNG families in this package:

  • PCG: A new family of RNG, based on linear congruential generators, using a permuted function to produce much more random output.
  • Mersenne Twister: The most widely used RNG, with long period.
  • Random123: A family of good-performance counter-based RNG.
  • Xorshift: A class of RNG based on exclusive or and bit shift.

Note that Random123 is now made a separate package as Random123.jl. You can still use your old code with RandomNumbers.Random123 as long as you import Random123 manually.

Usage

Please see the documentation for usage of this package.
