I’ve been programming in IDL for a couple of decades. How did I not know about this bizarre behavior of its random number generator?
Apparently, this is something people know about, but somehow I’d missed it for all this time.
I am chair of the physics department at the University of Richmond. In addition to teaching a variety of undergraduate physics courses, I work on a variety of research projects in cosmology, the study of the origin, structure, and evolution of the Universe. University of Richmond undergraduates are involved in all aspects of this research. If you want to know more about my research, ask me!
