Maximum Period Length and the Linear Congruential Method
|A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z||overview|
For a prime number , the sequence mod, , has exactly no period less than , if
By applying this criterion, appropriate multipliers can be determined for the simulation of random numbers by the linear congruential method.
