AbstractUniformly distributed pseudo-random number generators are commonly used in certain numerical algorithms and simulations. In this article a random number generation algorithm based on the geometric properties of complex Horadam sequences was investigated. For certain parameters, the sequence exhibited uniformity in the distribution of arguments. This feature was exploited to design a pseudo-random number generator which was evaluated using Monte Carlo π estimations, and found to perform comparatively with commonly used generators like Multiplicative Lagged Fibonacci and the 'twister' Mersenne.
