Mersenne Twister

The Mersenne Twister is a pseudorandom number generation algorithm created by Makoto Matsumoto. There is a Mersenne Twister home page, and a Wikipedia entry. The Mersenne Twister algorithm has a large period (something like 2^{19,937} - 1), and it is advertised as fast. There are two main portable implementations:
