How Random works?

I want to know which algorithm Mathematica are using to generate random
numbers. How large is its period? And how the deterministic part works? I
also need to have an quantitative idea about the bias in a random sequence
produced by this algorithm.

I tried google it, but have nothing found regarding to any details about
the algorithm. Any one can help? Thanks.
