Taking the middle order digits of \( x_n = frac\left(e^{2 x_{n-1} + 1}\right) \) starting with \( x_0 = frac\left(\pi\right) \) produces a fairly well distributed random number, at least in binary. This passes the dieharder tests and only fails a couple of the TestU01 suite. It is a good example of a simple function that appears to produce random output, yet is completely and obviously deterministic. It is also straightforward to show that rounding is not coming into play.
