Abstract : The statistical properties of the numbers generated by two uniform random number generators, RANDU and URN, each using ten different seeds are investigated. The properties investigated are the uniformity and the randomness of the sequence generated by each number generator. The Chi-square test is applied to the frequency distribution of the generated numbers to test for uniformity. Runs tests and the serial test are used to test for randomness. The testing is performed on a sequence of 50,000 numbers generated by each uniform random number generator using each of the ten seeds. (Author)
