Comparing Random Number Generators

The four generators:

  • Quantum = true random numbers from a quantum bit generator
  • Twister = the Mersenne Twister generator built in to JMP
  • Simple = a low quality Linear Congruence Generator RANDU = a better but flawed LCG using by IBM/360

You can use the Load Quantum script to read more quantum random numbers over a socket if you register at and edit the script with your username and password.
