Article Abstract

THIS IS THE FIRST PARAGRAPH FROM THE FULL TEXT DOCUMENT - NO ABSTRACT AVAILABLE

Why is it that statisticians put so much emphasis on randomization in virtually every aspect of sampling and experimentation? Here we shall discuss the importance and usage of random numbers. Those who have an interest in the generation of random numbers should consult Knuth (1981). There are theoretical aspects, practical aspects, and even psychological aspects relating to the use of random numbers. Before taking these up in turn, let's consider some general facts about random numbers.
