randomize

reset the seed for random number generators

 

Calling Sequence

Parameters

Description

Examples

Calling Sequence

randomize(r)

Parameters

r

-

(optional) positive integer

Description

• 

With a positive integer as an argument, randomize(n) will use the given value to initialize the state in the default random number generator. With no arguments, randomize() will use a number based on the system clock to initialize the state of the random number generator.

• 

The return value will be the seed used to initialize the state of the random number generator.  If n is specified the return value is n.

• 

randomize calls RandomTools[MersenneTwister][SetState].  It is more efficient to make this call directly than to call randomize.

• 

By passing the value returned by randomize into a subsequent call to randomize the same sequence of numbers will be generated.

• 

Since the no argument form of randomize() depends on the system clock, the same seed can be obtained if not enough time elapses between two consecutive calls to randomize().
