Beginning October 3, 2012 and largely depending on the rare breaks available while working on customer projects, this site is occassionally being edited and enlarged — We would enjoy welcoming you again on this page:
Complex Systems(First published Sept. 17, 2012. Last updated and extended Sept. 23, 2013)
1. IntroductionBeginning mid-October 2012, this page will be devoted to publish material on some selected aspects of complex systems like, for example, Monte Carlo simulations, elementary aspects of stochastics, fractal systems, Computational Physics / Numerics etc.
Interested readers are invited to visit this site again.
2. Elementary Questions and AnswersSome elementary questions and their answers can be found here:

3. First Remarks on Random Number Algorithms, Monte Carlo Simulations, etc.In the few algorithms considered during the next months, we will need

For those not using a recent C++11 compiler with its built-in implementation of the Mersenne Twister algorithms, we are recommending to use the code found on the above web site and use this to generate an
We are using two overloaded versions of the random number generator program. The first prototype allows for modifying the random seeds while being invocated. The resulting
The second version may be used without modifying the random seeds on the fly:
The other methods, used for retrieving the number of independent random numbers and the value of the seeds, are just given for reference:
