# scipy.linalg.interpolative.seed¶

scipy.linalg.interpolative.seed(seed=None)[source]

Seed the internal random number generator used in this ID package.

The generator is a lagged Fibonacci method with 55-element internal state.

Parameters
seedint, sequence, ‘default’, optional

If ‘default’, the random seed is reset to a default value.

If seed is a sequence containing 55 floating-point numbers in range [0,1], these are used to set the internal state of the generator.

If the value is an integer, the internal state is obtained from numpy.random.RandomState (MT19937) with the integer used as the initial seed.

If seed is omitted (None), numpy.random.rand is used to initialize the generator.
