Pseudo-Random Number Generators via Pine Script

These are my "Pseudo-Random Number Generators via Pine Script", having uniform distribution between 0 and 1. In my quest for sequential pseudo-random numbers in Pine, tinkering with mathematical chaos, I have come up with these three simple yet handy generators. I believe these may be useful in the future by developers of the Tradingview community.

NOTICE: Use it as you please, this is free code to implement into your new Pine projects. You don't have to ask for my permission to reuse these functions in your published scripts, simply because I have better things to do than answer requests for the reuse of these simplistic PRNG functions. I don't require accreditation for members to reuse these functions either. I simply don't want any credit. I only require that you respectfully put it to "good and proper use" complimenting the elaborate script you have in mind. I would however like to see some great ideas utilizing these when I randomly and accidentally come across them in the public library. I didn't know where to put this script, so I just tossed it into the "Trend Analysis" category.

The comments section below is solely just for commenting and other remarks, ideas, compliments, etc... regarding only this indicator, not others. When available time provides itself, I will consider your inquiries, thoughts, and concepts presented below in the comments section, should you have any questions or comments regarding this indicator. When my indicators achieve more prevalent use by TV members , I may implement more ideas when they present themselves as worthy additions. As always, "Like" it if you simply just like it with a proper thumbs up, and also return to my scripts list occasionally for additional postings. Have a profitable future everyone!
