Random Number Generation

A random number generator is a device that generates a sequence of numbers or symbols that cannot be reasonably predicted better than by a random chance. Random number generators can be true hardware random-number generators, which generate genuinely random numbers, or pseudo-random number generators, which generate numbers that look random, but are actually deterministic, and can be reproduced if the state of the PRNG is known. Various applications of randomness have led to the development of several different methods for generating random data, of which some have existed since ancient times, among whose ranks are well-known "classic" examples, including the rolling of dice, coin flipping, the shuffling of playing cards, the use of yarrow stalks in the I Ching, as well as countless other techniques. Because of the mechanical nature of these techniques, generating large numbers of sufficiently random numbers required a lot of work and/or time.
