Interface RandomGenerator

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultRandomGenerator

public interface RandomGenerator

Basis for all Random Number Generators to be used in JAGA. JAGA uses an RNG specified in parameters rather the a system RNG. This allowes to reproduce results by specifying a predictable RNG (e.g. by using the same seed for the Java-RNG).
