The method presented by Marsaglia (2003), as stated in the paper, is based on a succession of developments starting with Kolmogorov and culminating in a masterful treatment by Durbin (1972). Durbin's monograph summarized and extended many previous works published in the years 1933-73.

This function implements the small C procedure provided by Marsaglia on his paper with corrections made by Simard (2010). Further optimizations also have been performed.
