Several motivations are recognized for user-defined random number generators in preference to built-in generators. The mixed method of random number generation is discussed) and the conditions for achieving full period with a modulus of 2^b are explained. Implementation of mixed random number generators is affected both by the computer and language used. Guidelines are presented for realizing acceptable mixed generators on several machines using the FORTRAN, PL/l and SNOBOL4 languages.
