random number generator,

n a specific kind of random event generator that uses an electronic circuit to produce a random string of numbers. Such circuits are useful in studying mind-matter interactions. See also mind-matter interactions and random event generator.

In the experiment, it was theorized that the superposition of the random events would have remained in an indeterminate state until the students viewed the feedback--their intention skewing the results of the random generator, backward in time.
We assume that the nodes have at their disposal some independent random generators providing uniform random values on [0, 1].
The use of prerecorded random numbers obviates the need for a true random generator, because the required random numbers can be obtained from the Internet.
In following the procedure for each unit, the experimenter used a true random generator to record the random bit-sequences for the 100 blocks on floppy disk.
One might want to say that the random generator "senses" that a subject will later make a PK effort, and behaves accordingly.
In particular, if the true random generator based on electronic noise were to break down, getting stuck, for example, in one position, there would still be no bias that could simulate a PK effect in the b bits.
In 1996 Andrecut [36] suggested a method for designing a random number generator based on logistic map and also compared the congruential random generators, which are periodic, with the logistic random number generator, which is infinite and aperiodic.
Verification capabilities including Assertions, Bus Analyzers, and Random Generators are utilized to drive the testing process.
