Non-periodic pseudo-random numbers used in Monte Carlo calculations
Here we present the use of the simplest equation where chaos occurs, the logistic map. Using it, it is possible to generate random numbers in the (0,1) interval, with a particular distribution, and using the Ulam-Neumann transformation [2-5] they transform in a set of uniform deviates in that interval.
Non-periodic pseudo-random numbers used in Monte Carlo calculations
