Physical random number generators


Definition:

Random number generators based on the recognition of selected experiments as random (e.g. a result of a flip of a coin or a toss of a die). The results of such experiments can be processed into the corresponding binary sequences of zeros and ones and thus random numbers with given accuracy and good statistical properties can be obtained (fulfilling tests of randomness or independence).
