r-dqrng 0.3.0 Fast pseudo random number generators

Several fast random number generators are provided as C++ header-only libraries: the PCG family as well as Xoroshiro128+ and Xoshiro256+. Additionally, fast functions for generating random numbers according to a uniform, normal and exponential distribution are included. The latter two use the Ziggurat algorithm originally proposed by Marsaglia and Tsang. These functions are exported to R and as a C++ interface and are enabled for use with the default 64 bit generator from the PCG family, Xoroshiro128+ and Xoshiro256+ as well as the 64 bit version of the 20 rounds Threefry engine (Salmon et al., 2011) as provided by the package sitmo.
