[edit] Predefined generators

I think the standard typedef'd generators (minstd's, mt19937's, ranluxes, knuth_b) deserve their own pages if only to explain what standard does 'std' refer to, what does 'ranlux' stand for, where does the number 19937 come from, and how is knuth_b related to Donald Knuth. I think the wiki would be most useful if it could even provide a few pointers on which generator to use for which purpose. --Cubbi 19:54, 20 October 2011 (PDT)
