Hi,

I am using RandomVariate to generate pseudo random numbers from a Negative Binomial distribution.

It works perfectly fine but for my study I need to know what method for generation it uses.

I found that there are five methods for random number generation:
http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/tutorial/RandomNumberGeneration.html#185956823

"Congruential", "ExtendedCA", "Legacy", "MersenneTwister", "MKL", "ParallelGenerator", "ParallelMersenneTwister" and "Rule30CA"

But these are not an option for RandomVariate.

Do you know where could find more information?
