Design and Efficient Implementation of a large class of High-Quality Pseudo Random Number Generators
Lih-Yuan Deng (University of Memphis)


A good pseudo random number generator (PRNG) should have a sufficiently long period, fast generating speed, high-dimensional uniformity, and stellar empirical performance. In addition to these requirements, the strong demand of parallel processing in today's large-scale computing environment requires a mechanism for a PRNG to generate suitable streams of pseudo random numbers for multiple processors in parallel. Among well-known PRNGs, maximum-period multiple recursive generators (MRGs) with many nonzero terms would be such a great PRNG if only it could be implemented efficiently and in parallel. In this talk, we will show how to automatically generate numerous maximum-period MRGs with many nonzero terms, and then implement them efficiently and in parallel.
