In order to begin a study of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) effects in high temperature gases, it was decided to develop a plasma torch as a generator of the required high temperature gases e A device was needed that could operate reliably for at least several minutes and generate adequate volumes of hot gases (about 3000 K)« Current commercial devices were beyond the financial capabilities of this study, so an attempt was made to develop such a device at RPI„ A working model of the DC plasma torch was put in operation in the spring of I96O0

Pseudorandom number generators for mobile devices: an examination and attempt to improve randomness Larsson, Ola (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09);This thesis examines the quality of pseudorandom number generation for cryptographic purposes in general and the generation of such numbers in a mobile device (Android phone), in particular, since we expected to find ...
Lewis, Peter A. W. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1986-12); NPS55-86-025There exist today many 'good' pseudo-random number generators; the problem is to retrieve them. This document discusses three commonly used pseudo- random number generators, the first being RANDU, a notoriously bad generator, ...
Howe, John E. (1965);Methods are developed, and Fortran 63 CODAP computer programs are demonstrated, to generate random numbers from the uniform, normal (including multivariate normal), Poisson, and exponential probability distributions. ...
