Inheritance diagram for SST::RNG::MersenneRNG:

## Public Member Functions | |

MersenneRNG (unsigned int seed) | |

Create a new Mersenne RNG with a specified seed. | |

MersenneRNG () | |

Creates a new Mersenne using a random seed which is obtained from the system clock. | |

double | nextUniform () |

Generates the next random number as a double value between 0 and 1. | |

uint32_t | generateNextUInt32 () |

Generates the next random number as an unsigned 32-bit integer. | |

uint64_t | generateNextUInt64 () |

Generates the next random number as an unsigned 64-bit integer. | |

int64_t | generateNextInt64 () |

Generates the next random number as a signed 64-bit integer. | |

int32_t | generateNextInt32 () |

Generates the next random number as a signed 32-bit integer. | |

~MersenneRNG () | |

Destructor for Mersenne. |

Implements a Mersenne-based RNG for use in the SST core or components.

The Mersenne RNG provides a better "randomness" to the distribution of outputs but is computationally more expensive than the Marsaglia RNG.

MersenneRNG::MersenneRNG | ( | unsigned int | seed |
) |

Create a new Mersenne RNG with a specified seed.

**Parameters:**-
`[in]`*seed*The seed for this RNG

MersenneRNG::MersenneRNG | ( | ) |

Creates a new Mersenne using a random seed which is obtained from the system clock.

Note this will give different results on different platforms and between runs.
