Random Numbers
Channon Price
Physics Department

There are many uses for random numbers. Generating random numbers has been an important activity in computational physics since the birth of the Monte Carlo method. However, physicists are no longer the only group of non-mathematicians with an interest in random numbers. This talk will be a casual survey by an interested layman of some aspects of the present situation in the field of random numbers.*

* Not to be confused with a random field of numbers, or a number of random fields.
