Hello,
The following object is built in by MATLAB
comm.AWGNChannel('NoiseMethod', 'Signal to noise ratio (SNR)',...
'SNR', snrdB, 'RandomStream', 'mt19937ar with seed', 'Seed', 67);
I am wondering what is the use of
'RandomStream', 'mt19937ar with seed', 'Seed', 67
I have seen this expression being used in many objects other than
comm.AWGNChannel.
Thanks

It's a way of generating random numbers. Look at the first example below: http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/randstream.html
Also, to see some other types you can refer to this: http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/randstream.list.html

The argument following 'RandomStream' is the specific random number generator algorithm used. The default is called Mersenne Twister, but it is selected with 'mt19937ar'.
The seed number allows you to repeat the same number stream.
