  1. An upstate New York business machine company used to include a random number generator called RANDU in its software library. This generator was supposed to produce numbers that behaved like uniform random variables. The data set randu in the file randu.lsp in the Data folder consists of a list of three lists of numbers. These lists are consecutive triples of numbers produced by RANDU. Use spin-plot to see if you can spot any unusual features in this sample.
