  I am doing a many-step Brownian dynamics simulation on a collection 
of small particles. Does anyone know how the pseudo-random numbers are
generated for Brownian random displacements? In particular, what is   
the period of the generator, and has it been shown to have no         
long-term spurious correlations?
