A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates

Standard

Bruce Schnier today pointed out that A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates, published by the Rand Corporation back when generating random numbers was really hard, has been reprinted and is available on Amazon.

[Just as a side note, did anybody read the title and get a vague but disturbing mental image of some sort of mega-Caligula scene with 100,000 deviates sticking their million random digits into one another’s…well, you know. No? Good, me neither.]

Anyway, you should really, really go now and read the reviews. I think that this tome will be taking a place of honor in my library, right next to The History and Social Influence of the Potato
