The package rstream provides a unified interface to streams of random numbers for the R statistical computing language. Features are: * independent streams of random numbers * substreams * easy handling of streams (initialize, reset) * antithetic random variates The paper describes this packages and demonstrates an simple example the usefulness of this approach.
