ISO 28640:2010 specifies methods for generating uniform and non-uniform random variates for Monte Carlo simulation purposes. Cryptographic random number generation methods are not included. ISO 28640:2010 is applicable, inter alia, by
researchers, industrial engineers or experts in operations management, who use statistical simulation,
statisticians who need randomization related to SQC methods, statistical design of experiments or sample surveys,
applied mathematicians who plan complex optimization procedures that require the use of Monte Carlo methods, and
software engineers who implement algorithms for random variate generation.
