The Casimir Effect and the Foundations of Statistical Physics
Author thanks to Alexander Lukashenko for the inspiration of GPGPU-technology, Michael Bordag and Wolfhard Janke for the organization of the mini-workshop “Simulations on GPU” , where the sub ject of pseudo-random numbers generation on GPUs was discussed.
