Fast Pseudo Random Number Generators

Several fast random number generators are provided as C++ header only libraries: The PCG family by O'Neill (2014 <https://www.cs.hmc.edu/tr/hmc-cs-2014-0905.pdf>) as well as Xoroshiro128+ and Xoshiro256+ by Blackman and Vigna (2018 <arXiv:1805.01407>). In addition fast functions for generating random numbers according to a uniform, normal and exponential distribution are included. The latter two use the Ziggurat algorithm originally proposed by Marsaglia and Tsang (2000, <doi:10.18637/jss.v005.i08>). These functions are exported to R and as a C++ interface and are enabled for use with the 64 bit version of the Mersenne-Twister by Matsumoto and Nishimura (1998 <doi:10.1145/272991.272995>), the default 64 bit generator from the PCG family as well as Xoroshiro128+ and Xoshiro256+.
