# Comparing Rule 30 Pseudorandoms to a Uniform Distribution

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

The Demonstration "Using Rule 30 to Generate Pseudorandom Real Numbers" demonstrates an algorithm that uses the rule 30 cellular automaton to generate numbers that can be regarded as nearly random selections from the unit interval. This Demonstration compares the distribution of the numbers generated by that algorithm for a range of initial seeds with a uniform distribution over the unit interval.
