:This is a good question that should be looked into. I think the best thing to do is to start a new page dedicated to ACORN, and if ACG is indeed equivalent to ACORN, then the existing ACG page can be very easily converted into a redirect page to ACORN.

ACORN is still alive in 2019, and performing well.

... should include links to

1.Wikipedia page ACORN PRNG

and

2.to ACORN web site http://acorn.wikramaratna.org


I am glad to hear it. If you are an expert on this generator, please feel free to add as much material as you deem appropriate. All the best, -- Carl McBride (talk) 09:40, 8 May 2019 (CEST)


I added the web site to ACG page, and added a clarification to your 'Random Numbers' page based on your 2007 statement that ACG is the same as ACORN


However there is an important question ! is ACG equivalent to ACORN ? Are you sure ? If these are in fact two different PRNGs then we would need a separate ACORN page, and a new line in 'random numbers'


This is a good question that should be looked into. I think the best thing to do is to start a new page dedicated to ACORN, and if ACG is indeed equivalent to ACORN, then the existing ACG page can be very easily converted into a redirect page to ACORN.
