ghc-splitmix 0.1.0.3 Fast and splittable pseudorandom number generator
This package provides a Pure Haskell implementation of the SplitMix pseudorandom number generator. SplitMix is a "splittable" pseudorandom number generator that is quite fast: 9 64-bit arithmetic/logical operations per 64 bits generated. SplitMix is tested with two standard statistical test suites (DieHarder and TestU01, this implementation only using the former) and it appears to be adequate for "everyday" use, such as Monte Carlo algorithms and randomized data structures where speed is important. In particular, it should not be used for cryptographic or security applications, because generated sequences of pseudorandom values are too predictable (the mixing functions are easily inverted, and two successive outputs suffice to reconstruct the internal state).
