mcg31m1

mcg31m1

The 31-bit multiplicative congruential pseudorandom number generator MCG(1132489760, 231 -1).

Description

The mcg31m1 engine is a 31-bit multiplicative congruential generator [L’Ecuyer99]. The mcg31m1 generator belongs to linear congruential generators with the period length of approximately \(2^{31}\). Such generators are still used as default random number generators in various software systems, mainly due to the simplicity of the portable versions implementation, speed, and compatibility with the earlier systems versions. However, their period length does not meet the requirements for modern basic generators. Still, the mcg31m1 generator possesses good statistic properties and you may successfully use it to generate random numbers of different distributions for small samplings.

Generation algorithm

\(x_n=ax_{n-1}(mod \ m)\)

\(u_n = x_n / m\)

\(a = 1132489760, m=2^{31} - 1\)
