Differences between Statistics101 and Resampling Stats


Random Number Generator:

By default, all the random numbers used by Statistics101 are generated by the Mersenne Twister algorithm, which is considered to be superior for simulation applications. However, Statistics101 provides the option of using the generator in the java.util.Random class. For details on the Java class, see http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/util/Random.html. See the SEED command for how to choose the algorithm. You can also change the default algorithm in the Edit>Preferences dialog.
