This document describes the TinyMT32 Pseudo Random Number Generator
(PRNG) that produces 32-bit pseudo-random unsigned integers and aims
at having a simple-to-use and deterministic solution. This PRNG is a
small-sized variant of Mersenne Twister (MT) PRNG, also designed by
M. Saito and M. Matsumoto. The main advantage of TinyMT32 over MT
is the use of a small internal state, compatible with most target
platforms including embedded devices, while keeping a reasonably good
Working Group Summary
This document was created from content that had been within another document (draft-ietf-tsvwg-rlc-fec-scheme) in order to correct copyright issues that where noted in the IESG review of that other document. Thus, the majority of the content of this document went through two working group last calls (one while it was part of the RLC FEC document that received many specific reviews, and one by itself, with less reviews).
There have been implementations, specifically related to the RLC FEC scheme. These implementations were reported to the working group, and the documents benefited from the implementation and testing experience. The document itself also contains most of an implementation as the source-code description of the algorithm.
Wesley Eddy is the document shepherd, and Magnus Westerlund is the responsible Area Director.
