Linear Congruent Random Number Generator Model
written by
Wolfgang Christian
The Linear Congruent Number Generator Model generates a sequence of integers x[i] over the interval [0, m-1] by the recurrence relation
x[i+1] = (a*x[i]+c) mod m where the modulus m is greater than zero, the multiplier a is greater than zero and less than m, and the increment c is greater than zero and less than m. All numbers are integers and all arithmetic is integer arithmetic. The initial value x[0] is known as the seed. The Linear Congruent Number Generator Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_math_RandomLCG.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
