Description

The random number generator used is based on NR3. It is neither really tested as a parallel number generator nor is it cleared for use under an open source license. Therefore it should be replaced by renowned parallel number generator. Ranlux is a prime candidate and an OpenCL implementation exists. This can be found at https://bitbucket.org/ivarun/ranluxcl/.
