Abstract

This paper is based on the theory developed by Dr. Evangelos Yfantis, professor of Computer Science at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In this paper, we describe a method for testing the fairness of pseudorandom number generators using the Discrete Fourier Transform. We will show how the concept of a random process can be used in a representation for random discrete time signals. Using this concept, we have focused on the mathematical representations of the spectral analysis of a fair pseudorandom number generator. From this representation, a reasonable "spectral" expectation is determined. An algorithm which applies the developed method is described, and a modified shift register random number generator is used to produce sample data.
