It is actually possible to find important, non-trivial bugs by random tests,
e.g. this multivariable polynomial factorization
But it is usually a waste of effort to systematically check trivial,
unmotivated cases. It requires some understanding of the underlying
mathematics or algorithms (white-box testing) to distinguish trivial from
non-trivial cases. Usually it is the edge cases that are more likely to be
