RNG's (Random Number Generators)
A random number generator is a computational or physical device designed to generate a sequence of numbers that does not have any easily discernable pattern, so that the sequence can be treated as being random. Random number generators have existed since ancient times, in the form of dice and coin flipping, the shuffling of playing cards, the use of yarrow stalks in the I Ching, and many other methods.
 
Monte Carlo methods were originally practiced under more generic names such as "statistical sampling". The "Monte Carlo" designation, popularized by early pioneers in the field (including Stanislaw Marcin Ulam, Enrico Fermi, John von Neumann and Nicholas Metropolis), is a reference to the famous casino in Monaco. Its use of randomness and the repetitive nature of the process are analogous to the activities conducted at a casino. Stanislaw Marcin Ulam tells in his autobiography Adventures of a Mathematician that the method was named in honor of his uncle, who was a gambler, at the suggestion of Metropolis.
