A million random digits with 100,000 normal deviates by Rand Corporation( Book )

1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic table of random numbers for use in statistical probability experiments, one of the first, was prepared in the precomputer days of 1947 using the specially built electronic equivalent of a 32-place roulette wheel. Fourteen RAND mathematicians, engineers, and computing pioneers participated in the planning, testing, and rerandomizing of the tables and in preparing for publication. The two tables, one of a million random digits and one of 100,000 Gaussian deviates, were photoreproduced from IBM 856 Cardatype printout. An introduction explains their derivation and statistical properties and gives directions for use. Although large simulation studies now generate their own random numbers, the RAND tables remain useful for smaller-scale work and hand calculations; they are much used in agricultural research. As of September 1971, [A Million Random Digits] was in its third printing, and nearly 7000 copies had been sold. (Published by The Free Press, 1955. Available only from booksellers or the publisher, or as a RAND Reprint.) 225 pp
