My school requires me to work through a half-year final project. I've chosen the nature of random numbers and random number generators as the loose topic of the project. Now, I've realized that I need a clear main question or a clear idea of what I want to find out in my project.
I can think of:
* writing a paper that brings order to the jungle of random number generators, that shows what's available on the market and shows which generators are good, which aren't and why.
* testing which requirements the parameters of simpler generators need to meet and why.
* finding out why checksums produce perfectly random outputs.
You see, I just don't have a lot of ideas of what experiments I could perform concerning random numbers and random number generators.
I just feel like I need results that are new to the world. I know that this isn't the goal of this project, but regardless I'm not happy with all my ideas.
My school level is comparable to high school and thus my mathematical level isn't too high, but the project isn't such a big deal either. So please don't tell me to choose another topic.
I'd be very happy, if you could suggest some ideas for my project.
Thanks a lot
