Details of SFMT algorithm
This software is based on SFMT ver. 1.3.3 (SIMD oriented Fast Mersenne Twister(SFMT)) by Mutsuo Saito (Hiroshima University) and Makoto Matsumoto (Hiroshima University). See http://www.math.sci.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/~m-mat/MT/SFMT/index.html for the further details.
Note well: only (2^19937 - 1) period is supported.
sfmt: SFMT with C NIFs
sfmt_pure: SFMT with pure Erlang
- See CHANGES.md for the detail of miscellaneous changes
- Compiler requirement: C99 support (modern Clang and gcc will do):
c_src/sfmt_nif.cfor the details
- Also refer to sfmt-extstate at http://github.com/jj1bdx/sfmt-extstate

During the compatibility test of this software, Kenji Rikitake used the supercomputer service provided by Academic Center for Computing and Media Studies (ACCMS), Kyoto University.
Erlang Solutions kindly gave Kenji Rikitake an opportunity to give a presentation about this software at Erlang Factory SF Bay 2011.
