Bug#803354: ITP: dsfmt -- dSFMT pseudorandom number generator

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Peter Colberg <peter@colberg.org>

* Package name    : dsfmt
  Version         : 2.2.3
  Upstream Author : Mutsuo Saito and Makoto Matsumoto
* URL             : http://www.math.sci.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/~m-mat/MT/SFMT/
* License         : BSD-3-clause
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : dSFMT pseudorandom number generator

The double-precision SIMD-oriented Fast Mersenne Twister (dSFMT) is a variant
of the Mersenne Twister pseudorandom number generator designed for modern CPUs
with multi-stage pipelining and SIMD instructions. dSFMT directly generates
IEEE 754 format double-precision floating-point pseudorandom numbers in the
ranges [1, 2), [0, 1), (0, 1] and (0, 1), and supports various periods from
2^521-1 to 2^216091-1.

This package replaces the embedded copy of dSFMT in the julia package, and
is suited to substitute embedded copies in the xmds2 and shogun packages.

The package will be maintained by the Debian Julia Team (Cc'ed).
