virtual  ~SSTRandom () 
Destroys the random number generator.  
Implements a random number generator using the Marsaglia method.
This method is computationally cheap and provides a reasonable distribution of random numbers. If you need additional strength in the random numbers you may want to consider the Mersenne RNG.

MarsagliaRNG::MarsagliaRNG  (  unsigned int  initial_z, 
unsigned int  initial_w  
) 
Creates a new Marsaglia RNG using the initial seeds.
[in]  initial_z  One of the random seed pairs 
[in]  initial_w  One of the random seed pairs. 
MarsagliaRNG::MarsagliaRNG  (  ) 
Creates a new Marsaglia RNG using random initial seeds (which are read from the system clock).
Note that these will create variation between runs and between platforms.
void MarsagliaRNG::restart  (  unsigned int  new_z, 
unsigned int  new_w  
) 
Restart the random number generator with new seeds.
[in]  new_z  A new Zseed 
[in]  new_w  A new Wseed
