Random Numbers and Computers

Copertina anteriore
Springer, 5 apr 2018 - 260 pagine
This book covers pseudorandom number generation algorithms, evaluation techniques, and offers practical advice and code examples. Random Numbers and Computers is an essential introduction or refresher on pseudorandom numbers in computer science.

The first comprehensive book on the topic, readers are provided with a practical introduction to the techniques of pseudorandom number generation, including how the algorithms work and how to test the output to decide if it is suitable for a particular purpose.

Practical applications are demonstrated with hands-on presentation and descriptions that readers can apply directly to their own work. Examples are in C and Python and given with an emphasis on understanding the algorithms to the point of practical application. The examples are meant to be implemented, experimented with and improved/adapted by the reader.

Informazioni sull'autore (2018)

Ronald T. Kneusel holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Colorado, Boulder and an MS in Physics from Michigan State University. His background includes development of algorithms and applications for varied scientific disciplines from remote sensing to medical imaging. He is currently a Senior Data Scientist for Harris Corporation applying deep learning models to remote sensing imagery and other data sources. A product of the microcomputer revolution, Kneusel has had a life-long fascination with all aspects of computer science and mathematics. This is his second Springer book. The first, “Numbers and Computers” (in 2nd edition), explores how computers store and manipulate numbers.
