LAB 2. Random Number Generators.
To generate a sequence of numbers, the idea is to start with some initial values x1 , x2 , ., xk , called seeds,
and use a recurrence formula such as:
xn = g(xn1 , xn2 , ., xnk )
n>k
To insure that

Remember from Lab 3 that generating a uniformly distributed random variable U over the interval (0, 1)
is equivalent to generating a random number in the interval (0, 1

In probability theory, we will be particularly interested in repeating a chance experiment a large number
