Abstract:

Three different pseudo-random number generators were examined for use in a sonar detection simulation using a whiteness test. The fluctuation of the whiteness measure and the probability that an acceptable sequence of numbers could be produced were studied. The ran1 generator, initially thought to be suitable, was found to be unacceptable for our use. Random was the recommended generator.
