Questions about random number generation and the properties of numbers so generated. Questions about how to generate different types of random numbers or lists of them (RandomReal, RandomInteger, RandomComplex and RandomPrime), how to sample populations (RandomChoice and RandomSample) or how to sample symbolic distributions randomly (RandomVariate). Also questions about how to initialize, block, reinitialize or modify the pseudorandom number generator of Mathematica by using SeedRandom and BlockRandom.
