A Chicken implementation of SRFI 27.

See make-random-source for use of the NAME.

Pierre L'Ecuyer's Multiple Recursive Generator 32k3a random number generator

Returns an unregistered entropy-source built from the supplied U8PROC and F64PROC procedures.

Returns an unregistered entropy-source built from the supplied F64PROC procedure.

Port Entropy Source

Usage

(use entropy-port)

entropy-port-lifetime

entropy-port-lifetime #!optional SECONDSparameter

SECONDS is a positive real or a boolean: #t, to reset the default seconds, or #f, to determine the lifetime by GC finalization.

make-entropy-source/port

(make-entropy-source/port PORT [name: (NAME (gensym 'port-))] [docu: (DOCU "Entropy from an open port")]) -> entropy-sourceprocedure

Returns an unregistered entropy-source built from the supplied PORT, which is treated as a binary stream.

(make-entropy-source/port-open OPENER [name: (NAME (gensym 'port-))] [docu: (DOCU "Entropy from port")]) -> entropy-sourceprocedure

Returns an unregistered entropy-source built from the supplied OPENER.

OPENER is a (procedure () port), returning an opened port.

The returned port has an (entropy-port-lifetime) so the port may be closed and OPENER called more than once.

make-entropy-source/port-open-timed

(make-entropy-source/port-open-timed OPENER SECONDS [name: (NAME (gensym 'timed-port-))] [docu: (DOCU "Entropy from timed open port")]) -> entropy-sourceprocedure

The opened port for the file NAMSTR is interpreted as with make-entropy-source/port-open.

Simple Distributions

Provides exact and inexact generators. All return 2 values: the generator itself and a procedure returning the argument values used to parameterize the generator. The second return value can be ignored.

Usage

(use srfi-27-uniform-random)

make-uniform-random-integers

(make-uniform-random-integers [high: (HIGH #f)] [low: (LOW 0)] [precision: (PRECISION 1)] [source: (SOURCE (current-random-source))]) -> (procedure () integer)procedure

LOW, HIGH and PRECISION are integers.

SOURCE is a random-source.

HIGH, if not supplied, is the (- (random-source-maximum-range source) 1).

The generator returns integers in the range LOW .. HIGH with an index of PRECISION. Unlike a (random-integer) result negative integers are possible.

(random-integer/current) <> (make-uniform-random-integers). (random-integer/current) returns ((integer) -> integer). (make-uniform-random-integers) returns (() -> integer).

make-uniform-random-reals

(make-uniform-random-reals [precision: PRECISION] [source: (SOURCE (current-random-source))]) -> (procedure () real)procedure

The generator is as (random-source-make-reals SOURCE PRECISION).

PRECISION maybe #f, in which case the value is flonum-epsilon.

SOURCE is a random-source.

(random-real/current) = (make-uniform-random-reals). Both return procedures of (() -> real).

Vector Distributions

The procedures named as per make-random-... return a procedure of one argument N, the length of the vector to be created.

The nomenclature vector% is used to indicate a disjoint type union of vector, f32vector, f64vector. If the user is really keen to access the API for this type it is available in the, undocumented, "srfi-27-vector-support" module.

Usage

(use srfi-27-vector)

make-random-permutations

random-permutation!

(make-random-permutations [randoms: (RANDOMS random-integer/current)]) -> (procedure (integer) vector)procedure
(random-permutation! VECTOR [randoms: (RANDOMS random-integer/current)]) -> vectorprocedure

Performs the "Knuth shuffle" (or "Fisher-Yates shuffle").

Fills VECTOR with a random permutation of the finite set {0 ... N-1}, where N = (vector-length VECTOR).

RANDOMS is a procedure: (exact-real) -> exact-real

(From Gambit)

make-random-vector

random-vector!

(make-random-vector [randoms: (RANDOMS random-real/current)]) -> (procedure (integer) vector)procedure
(random-vector! VECTOR% [randoms: (RANDOMS random-real/current)]) -> vector%procedure

Fills VECTOR with inexact real random numbers from the random distribution generator randoms.

RANDOMS is a procedure: () -> inexact-real

make-random-hollow-sphere

random-hollow-sphere!

(make-random-hollow-sphere [mu: (MU 0.0)] [sigma: (SIGMA 1.0)] [randoms: (RANDOMS (random-real/current))]) -> (procedure (integer) vector)procedure
(random-hollow-sphere! VECTOR% [mu: (MU 0.0)] [sigma: (SIGMA 1.0)] [randoms: (RANDOMS (random-real/current))]) -> vector%procedure

Fills VECTOR% with inexact real random numbers the sum of whose squares are equal to 1.0.

Thinking of VECTOR% as coordinates in space of dimension N = (vector%-length VECTOR%), the coordinates are uniformly distributed over the surface of the unit n-sphere.

(From Gambit)

make-random-solid-sphere

random-solid-sphere!

(make-random-solid-sphere [mu: (MU 0.0)] [sigma: (SIGMA 1.0)] [randoms: (RANDOMS (random-real/current))]) -> (procedure (integer) vector)procedure
(random-solid-sphere! VECTOR% [mu: (MU 0.0)] [sigma: (SIGMA 1.0)] [randoms: (RANDOMS (random-real/current))]) -> vector%procedure

Fills VECTOR% with inexact real random numbers the sum of whose squares are less than 1.0.

Thinking of VECTOR% as coordinates in space of dimension N = (vector%-length VECTOR%), the coordinates are uniformly distributed within the unit n-sphere.

(From Gambit)

Other Distributions

Provides generators for some common distributions ranging over some subset of the inexact-reals. The domain of the generators depends, of course, on the specific distribution.

All return 2 values: the generator itself and a procedure returning the argument values used to parameterize the generator. The second return value can be ignored.

The identifiers matching *make-random-<distribution> are reserved.

Usage

(use srfi-27-distributions)

All distributions are available from the omnibus module srfi-27-distributions, and individually as the srfi-27-<distribution> module.
