Manuscript Title: A study of 128-bit multipliers for congruential pseudorandom number generators.
Authors: I.G. Dyadkin, K.G. Hamilton
Program title: RNMULT128
Catalogue identifier: ADLK_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 125(2000)239
Programming language: Data File.
Keywords: General purpose, Statistical methods, Monte Carlo, Random numbers, Random number generators, Pseudorandom, Congruential, Multipliers.
Classification: 4.13.

Nature of problem:
Any Monte Carlo calculation in physics or other subjects, particularly those involving massively parallel processing.

Solution method:
More than 2000 congruential sequences, each with a different multiplier may be used, either singly, or (preferentially) in a circulating manner. In the latter case, the familiar Marsaglia hyperplane pattern is disrupted, and a more chaotic distribution ensues.
