RNG – Random Number Generator

A collection of algorithms that generate pseudo random numbers between 0 and 1.  This generator was designed to support the massively parallel computing simulations of the LLNL Advanced Simulation and Computing Program  (ASCI) program.  RNG can generate 264 (or 18,446,744,073,709,551,616) numbers without repetition.  A new version currently under development will generate 2128 numbers.
