Given a method of generating independent random uniform numbers on the unit interval, two methods of generating independent random normal numbers, one method to generate exponential random numbers and one method to generate independent random numbers from the chi-square distribution are presented. All four methods are programmed in FORTRAN on the CDC 1604 high speed digital computer, and tested by a battery of statistical tests. Results of the tests are given in summarized form.
