## Abstract

This paper investigates the problem of variable-length intrinsic randomness for a general source. For this problem, we can consider two performance criteria based on the variational distance: the maximum and average variational distances. For the problem of variable-length intrinsic randomness with the maximum variational distance, we derive a general formula of the average length of uniform random numbers. Further, we derive the upper and lower bounds of the general formula and the formula for a stationary memoryless source. For the problem of variable-length intrinsic randomness with the average variational distance, we also derive a general formula of the average length of uniform random numbers.
