6.1 Random Number Generators

Within the QSMM framework, a random number generator is used by an adaptive probabilistic mapping as a source of randomness when stochastically emitting output signals according to their probabilities.

Standard random number generators used within the framework are actually pseudorandom number generators. A developer can also supply custom random number generators for using by the framework. Those custom random number generators may actually be pseudorandom number generators or may provide real random numbers, e.g. obtained using some physical process.
