TOMS370
General Random Number Generator
TOMS370
is a FORTRAN77 library which
implements ACM TOMS algorithm 370, for producing random samples
from an arbitrary Probability Density Function (PDF).
The text of many ACM TOMS algorithms is available online
through ACM:
http://www.acm.org/pubs/calgo
or NETLIB:
http://www.netlib.org/toms/index.html.
Usage:

call randg ( l, x, r, y )

where
L is a nonzero odd seed value, which is updated on output,
X is a vector of length 257, prepared by RANDGI,
R is a vector of length 256, prepared by RANDGI,
Y is output as a random value sampled from the PDF.
Languages:
TOMS370 is available in
a FORTRAN77 version.

PROB,
a FORTRAN90 library which
contains routines for sampling from a wide range of PDF's.
UNIFORM,
