## SUM CRITERIA FOR THE TASK OF TESTING THE INDEPENDENCE OF RANDOM NUMBERS SEQUENCES

Random and pseudo-random number generators (RNGs) were initially used to solve numerical integration problems (the Monte Carlo method). Currently, the RNGs are used in cryptography and simulation modeling. The latter one typically uses RNGs based on computer algorithms and programs. This article presents a method aimed at testing the independence of random numbers sequences (RNSs). The method is based on the sums properties of independent random variables. Algorithms based on this method operate fast.
