    • The Mixed Method of Random Number Generation: A Tutorial 

      Overstreet Jr., Claude; Nance, Richard E. (Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1974), CS74013-R
      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 ...
    • The Relationship Between the Multiplicative And Mixed Generators Modulo 2^b 

      Overstreet Jr., Claude (Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1974), CS74012-R
      MacLaren and Marsaglia [4] comment that their test results suggest that the multiplicative generator performs better than the mixed generator. We attempt to answer the above question by showing that for any sequence of ...
    • Some Experimental Observations on the Behavior of Composite Random Number Generators 

      Nance, Richard E.; Overstreet Jr., Claude (Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1974), CS74014-R
      A series of experiments with composite random number generators utilizing shuffling tables is described. The factors investigated are: (1) the magnitude of the modulus (equivalently, the word-size of the machine), (2) ...
