Reseed a legacy MT19937 BitGenerator
This is a convenience, legacy function.
The best practice is to not reseed a BitGenerator, rather to recreate a new one. This method is here for legacy reasons. This example demonstrates best practice.
>>> from numpy.random import MT19937 >>> from numpy.random import RandomState, SeedSequence >>> rs = RandomState(MT19937(SeedSequence(123456789))) # Later, you want to restart the stream >>> rs = RandomState(MT19937(SeedSequence(987654321)))
