# What are some non-uniform random number generators not relying on uniform random number generators?

What are some non-uniform random number generators not relying on uniform random number generators?

Are some of them for general non-uniform distributions, or are all of them for some particular non-uniform distributions?

Thanks!

• What is it that you need that you cannot get from a uniform random number generator? You can always do transformations (as this site does to get a normal distribution from a uniform distribution: random.org ). What do you mean by a "general non-uniform distribution"? – Joel W. Sep 27 '12 at 23:28
• general means for example not just for normal distributions – Tim Sep 28 '12 at 0:12
• What non-normal, non-uniform distribution(s) are you interested in? – Joel W. Sep 28 '12 at 10:15
