The goal of the project is to develop, implement and test a scalable package for parallel pseudo random number generation which will be easy to use on a variety of architectures, especially in large-scale parallel Monte Carlo applications.
SPRNG 1.0 provides the user the various SPRNG random number generators each in its own library. For most users this is acceptable, as one rarely uses more than one type of generator in a single program. However, if the user desires this added flexibility, SPRNG 2.0 provides it. In all other respects, SPRNG 1.0 and SPRNG 2.0 are identical. Both versions only uses the GNU Multi Precision (GMP) package for one of their generators. SPRNG 3.0 uses GMP for all generators. SPRNG 4.0 is a C++ version with the GMP package removed.
