Hello,
I'm interested in using the random network generating functions in the
igraph library. I assume a RNG is used in these functions. My studies
tell me that not all RNG's are the same.. some more random than others.
I was wondering if someone could either give a summary of the igraph RNG
or point me to some info that describes the methodologies used in the
igraph RNG.
Also can the igraph RNG generate 64-bit random numbers for 64-bit
environments?
Thank you
Richard
