Random Amazon

amillionrandomnumbers.jpgA Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates es un libro de la Rand Corporation. El link llleva a la página correspondiente de Amazon, donde hay reseñas absolutamente maravillosas. La imagen muestra una parte del contenido del libro (como lo muestra Amazon), creo que representativa. Lamentablemente, no está disponible la opción “Surprise me!”.

Algunos fragmentos de las reseñas:

  • “With that said, I was a little disappointed that 71602 was knocked off by 92937 just as the plot was unfolding, but the arrival of 96240 really got my blood pumping and I just couldn’t put the book down from that moment on. […] I wait, impatiently, for the audio CD version of this fine book.”
  • “The bulk of each page seems random enough. However at the lower left and lower right of alternate pages, the number is found to increment directly.”
  • “[T]hey’ve already begun production on the film adaptation! The rumor mill suggests that Brad Pitt is going to star as, you guessed it, 27473.”
  • I recently entered this book into my iPod … it was a great idea since I made a trip from Argentina to China. I used the shuffle option and it was like heaven!! I did not feel the trip at all …

Y así todo. ¡Oro puro!
