The source code of *version 3.05* is available
here (xorgens305.tar.gz) and
here (xorgens305.zip).
The theory is described in my paper [224].
The only difference between versions 3.04 and 3.05 is a small correction
to the comments (thanks to G. Weijers for this).

*xorgens* has been tested using various statistical tests and appears
to be satisfactory. However, we recommend that you do your own tests.

If you want to experiment with different sets of parameters, a short
table of possibilities is available
here (xortable.txt, 2K). Note that the code assumes that *r* is
a power of two, so some small changes are required if this is not the case.
We do not recommend the generators with *n* < 256 because their
state space is too small.

*xorgens* is available
(free, but with absolutely no warranty)
as open-source software under the
GNU General Public License.

*ranut* has been tested using George Marsaglia's
*Diehard* package
and appears to be satisfactory. However, we recommend that you do your own
tests and, if necessary, combine the output of ranut with that of an
independent random number generator.

*ranut* is based on an earlier generator RANU4 (1991) which is
described in [132].

Note that *ranut* and RANU4 implemented the "fast jump ahead" idea
(using arithmetic modulo the generating polynomial) which
was recently
rediscovered by Haramoto, Matsumoto, Nishimura, Panneton and L'Ecuyer
[INFORMS Journal on Computing 20, 3, Summer 2008, 385-390,
DOI: 10.1287/ijoc.1070.0251].
The implementation in RANU4 was described in
[Sec. 8, 132].

Nowadays I prefer *xorgens* to *ranut* since generators based
on primitive trinomials have some theoretical weaknesses. However, the
trinomials used in *ranut* have such high degree that these
weaknesses are probably insignificant in practice.

Most algorithms for generating normally
distributed random numbers are slow
because they first generate uniformly distributed numbers and
then transform them to normally distributed numbers.
*rannw* is potentially faster because it generates normally distributed
numbers directly, without using uniformly distributed numbers
(except occasionally, for initialisation etc).

*rannw* has been tested using Marsaglia's *Diehard* package
and appears to be satisfactory. (Because Diehard is designed to test
uniformly distributed numbers, the output of rannw was transformed
appropriately before input to Diehard.)

*rannw* is based on an earlier generator RANN4 which is
described in
[170,
185].

Wallace's own implementation of his method (written in C) is available here.

A gzipped tar file of *random version 1.03* is available
here (48 KB).
There is also a
zip file (55 KB).
The distribution contains the Fortran source code, test programs,
output obtained from testing with Diehard, etc.
