Abstract:

A nonperiodic random number generator which is based on the logistic equation is presented. A simple transformation which operates on the logistic variable and leads to a sequence of random numbers with a near-Gaussian distribution is described and discussed. The associated algorithm can be easily utilized in laboratory exercises, classroom demonstrations and software written for stochastic modelling purposes.
