What RNGs do Java and Python use?Due: February 2
Look up the documentation and/or source code for the random number generators used by (respectively)
java.util.Random and Python's
For each one, I want to know:
- What kind of PRNG is used?
- What specific parameters for that PRNG are implemented?
- What is the period of the PRNG?
- How is the default seed value computed? Does it use a "true" entropy source or something else?
