The Gap Test for Randomness

Abstract:  A pseudo-random number generator is a computer program that generates a sequence of numbers.  These numbers should "look random" and "behave like random numbers."  There are various tests of randomness used to see if the generated sequence appears to behave in a non-random fashion.  We discuss one such test - the Gap Test.  We perform a gap test on MatLab's random number generator.
