Shreenabh Agrawal, a student of Class X of The Chanda Devi Saraf School has crossed another milestone in the field of Research. His research paper ‘Empirical Assessment of Efficiency of Entropy Source for Random Number Generators using Auto-correlation Factor Test’ has been published in the World Scientific News.

In this research paper, Shreenabh has presented the results of his experimental study conducted at the Raman Science Centre, Innovation Hub over a period of last 14 months. He carried out the statistical analysis of random numbers generated by a prototype designed by him. He had recently presented his prototype at the Initiative for Research and Innovation in Science (IRIS), national fair held at Delhi.

Shreenabh designed such a True Random Number Generator with a unique and innovative entropy source. He then tested the prototype taking four experimental conditions. The output in the form of random numbers was tested using both Kolmogorov Smirnov Test for Uniform distribution and Runs Test for randomness of numbers. Shreenabh then extended the work further and tested the output using Autocorrelation Factor Test and found that the results were far better. He found that even though the random number generator had passed the other two tests for three experimental conditions they failed in Autocorrelation Factor Test. He concluded from his experimental research that Autocorrelation Factor Test is a more powerful test for testing the efficiency of an entropy source. He then proposed this work in the form of an empirical research paper to the World Scientific News which not only accepted the paper for publication but also profusely praised his work at such a young age.

World Scientific News is an on-line International Scientific Research Journal (EISSN 2392-2192) published by International Scientific Publishing House 'Darwin', Poland. Dr Tomasz Borowski is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal. The Editorial Board includes Scientists and Researchers from more than 20 countries. The journal publishes the findings, insights, observations and conclusions related to social and humanistic sciences, science and technology and natural sciences.

Shreenabh Agrawal has published his research work earlier in the Journal of Scientific Temper (CSIR-NISCAIR) and the Botanique (UGC approved). He shares the credit of his work with Raman Science Centre, the Chanda Devi Saraf School, his mentors, teachers, family and friends.
