RNG is a portable, parallel random number generator. It's portable because the same sequence of numbers is generated on all platforms and it's parallel because many independent random sequences can be generated in parallel (for example on separate processors in an MPI program). In addition, the generator is fast (comparable in speed to system-supplied generators) and is of high quality (usually better than the system-supplied generators).
