A collection of classical pseudorandom number generators with linear structures - advanced version

Karl Entacher

June 16, 2000


This is a collection1of selected linear pseudorandom number generators that were implemented in commercial software, used in applications, and some of which have extensively been tested. The quality of these generators is examined using scatter plots and the spectral test. In addition, the spectral test is applied to study the applicability of linear congruential generators on parallel architectures.

Additional Key Words and Phrases: Pseudorandom number generator, linear congruential generator, multiple recursive generator, combined pseudorandom number generators, parallel pseudorandom number generator, lattice structure, spectral test.
