USE MRG32k3a INSTEAD of this class.
This class implements the interface RandomStream directly, with a few additional tools. It uses the same backbone (or main) generator as MRG32k3a, but it is an older implementation that does not extend RandomStreamBase, and it is about 10% slower.
RandMrg  (  ) 
Constructs a new stream, initializes its seed \(I_g\), sets \(B_g\) and \(C_g\) equal to \(I_g\), and sets its antithetic switch to false
.
The seed \(I_g\) is equal to the initial seed of the package given by setPackageSeed(long[]) if this is the first stream created, otherwise it is \(Z\) steps ahead of that of the stream most recently created in this class.
RandMrg  (  String  name  ) 
Constructs a new stream with an identifier name
(can be used when printing the stream state, in error messages, etc.).
name  name of the stream 
void advanceState  (  int  e, 
int  c  
) 
Advances the state of this stream by \(k\) values, without modifying the states of other streams (as in setSeed
), nor the values of \(B_g\) and \(I_g\) associated with this stream.
If \(e > 0\), then \(k=2^e + c\); if \(e < 0\), then \(k=2^{e} + c\); and if \(e = 0\), then \(k=c\). Note: \(c\) is allowed to take negative values. This method should be used only in very exceptional cases; proper use of the reset...
methods and of the stream constructor cover most reasonable situations.
e  an exponent 
c  a constant 
RandMrg clone  (  ) 
Clones the current generator and return its copy.
Implements CloneableRandomStream.
double [] getState  (  ) 
Returns the current state \(C_g\) of this stream.
This is a vector of 6 integers represented in floatingpoint format. This method is convenient if we want to save the state for subsequent use.
void increasedPrecis  (  boolean  incp  ) 
After calling this method with incp = true
, each call to the generator (direct or indirect) for this stream will return a uniform random number with (roughly) 53 bits of resolution instead of 32 bits, and will advance the state of the stream by 2 steps instead of.
s
is a stream of the class RandMrg
, in the nonantithetic case, the instruction "<tt>u = s.nextDouble()</tt>", when the resolution has been increased, is equivalent to "<tt>u =
(s.nextDouble() + s.nextDouble()*fact) % 1.0</tt>" where the constant fact
is equal to \(2^{24}\). This also applies when calling nextDouble
indirectly (e.g., via nextInt
, etc.).By default, or if this method is called again with incp = false
, each call to nextDouble
for this stream advances the state by 1 step and returns a number with 32 bits of resolution.
incp  true if increased precision is desired, false otherwise 
void nextArrayOfDouble  (  double []  u, 
int  start,  
int  n  
) 
Generates n
(pseudo)random numbers from the uniform distribution and stores them into the array u
starting at index start
.
u  array that will contain the generated uniforms 
start  starting index, in the array u , to write uniforms from 
n  number of uniforms to generate 
Implements RandomStream.
void nextArrayOfInt  (  int  i, 
int  j,  
int []  u,  
int  start,  
int  n  
) 
Generates n
(pseudo)random numbers from the discrete uniform distribution over the integers \(\{i,i+1,…,j\}\), using this stream and stores the result in the array u
starting at index start
.
(Calls nextInt
n
times.)
i  smallest integer that can be generated 
j  greatest integer that can be generated 
u  array that will contain the generated values 
start  starting index, in the array u , to write integers from 
n  number of values being generated 
Implements RandomStream.
double nextDouble  (  ) 
Returns a (pseudo)random number from the uniform distribution over the interval \((0,1)\), using this stream, after advancing its state by one step.
Normally, the returned number has 32 bits of resolution, in the sense that it is always a multiple of \(1/(2^{32}208)\). However, if the precision has been increased by calling increasedPrecis
for this stream, the resolution is higher and the stream state advances by two steps.
Implements RandomStream.
int nextInt  (  int  i, 
int  j  
) 
Returns a (pseudo)random number from the discrete uniform distribution over the integers \(\{i,i+1,…,j\}\), using this stream.
(Calls nextDouble
once.)
i  smallest integer that can be generated 
j  greatest integer that can be generated 
Implements RandomStream.

static 
Sets the initial seed for the class RandMrg
to the six integers in the vector seed[0..5]
.
This will be the seed (initial state) of the first stream. If this method is not called, the default initial seed is \((12345, 12345, 12345, 12345, 12345, 12345)\). If it is called, the first 3 values of the seed must all be less than \(m_1 = 4294967087\), and not all 0; and the last 3 values must all be less than \(m_2 = 4294944443\), and not all 0.
seed  array of 6 elements representing the seed 
void setSeed  (  long  seed[]  ) 
Sets the initial seed \(I_g\) of this stream to the vector seed[0..5]
.
This vector must satisfy the same conditions as in setPackageSeed
. The stream is then reset to this initial seed. The states and seeds of the other streams are not modified. As a result, after calling this method, the initial seeds of the streams are no longer spaced \(Z\) values apart. For this reason, this method should be used only in very exceptional situations; proper use of reset...
and of the stream constructor is preferable.
seed  array of 6 integers representing the new seed 
String toString  (  ) 
Returns a string containing the current state of this stream.
Implements RandomStream.
String toStringFull  (  ) 
Returns a string containing the name of this stream and the values of all its internal variables.
