Class Description


 Random number generator class based on
   M. Matsumoto and T. Nishimura,
   Mersenne Twistor: A 623-diminsionally equidistributed
   uniform pseudorandom number generator
   ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation,
   Vol. 8, No. 1, January 1998, pp 3--30.

 For more information see the Mersenne Twistor homepage

 Advantage: large period 2**19937-1
            relativly fast
              (only two times slower than TRandom, but
               two times faster than TRandom2)
 Drawback:  a relative large internal state of 624 integers

  Produces uniformly-distributed floating points between 0 and 1.
  Method: Mersenne Twistor

void SetSeed(UInt_t seed)
  Set the random generator sequence
