Abstract: It is very difficult to define 'randomness'. However a simple definition of Random Numbers would be as follows: Random numbers can be defined as a sequence of numbers which do not follow a regular pattern. Thus one cannot possibly guess the value of the next number in the sequence, as this may be bigger, equal or smaller than its previous values or set of values. An example of a random number sequence is: 1, 7, 13, 24, 8, 3, 6, 50, 39, 86, 87, 2, ... We describe how random sequences may be generated, and tested for randomness.
