[R-pkgs] New package qrandom: True random numbers

Siegfried Köstlmeier
Hi everyone,
I would like to introduce a new package for R which is available on CRAN
now:

qrandom: True Random Numbers using the ANU Quantum Random Numbers Server

Note:
(1) This package generates true random numbers and can be used as an
alternative for RANDOM.ORG.
(2) There is absolutely no limit on how many true random numbers one may
retrieve.
(3) A sequence up to 100,000 true random integers or hexadecimal numbers
per single request is possible and data is whether a sequence, uniform
distribution or normal distribution.

Description:
It provides an interface to the ANU Quantum Random Number Generator
<https://qrng.anu.edu.au/index.php> provided by the Australian National
University. True random numbers are generated in real-time by measuring
the quantum fluctuations of the vacuum. The electromagnetic field of the
vacuum exhibits random fluctuations in phase and amplitude at all
frequencies. By carefully measuring these fluctuations, one is able to
generate ultra-high bandwidth random numbers. The quantum Random Number
Generator is based on the papers by Symul et al., (2011)
<https://doi.org/10.1063/1.3597793> and Haw, et al. (2015)
<https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevApplied.3.054004>. The package offers
functions to retrieve a sequence of random integers or hexadecimals and
true random samples from a normal or uniform distribution.

The R package is available via
https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/qrandom/index.html
If you like to access the developmental version:

Best regards,
Siegfried Köstlmeier (Ph.D. student in Finance at the University of
Regensburg)
