In mathematics, the middle-square method is a method of generating pseudorandom numbers. In practice it is not a good method, since its period is usually very short and it has some severe weaknesses; repeated enough times, the middle-square method will either begin repeatedly generating the same number or cycle to a previous number in the sequence and loop indefinitely.

So this algorithm is actually useless nowadays. This task is aimed at honoring John von Neumann.fzh2003 (talk) 14:37, 3 January 2022 (UTC)
