CPUs and operating systems are moving from 32 to 64 bits, and hence it is important to have good pseudorandom number generators designed to fully exploit these word lengths. However, existing 64-bit very long period generators based on linear recurrences modulo 2 are not completely optimized in terms of the equidistribution properties. Here we develop 64-bit maximally equidistributed pseudorandom number generators that are optimal in this respect and have speeds equivalent to 64-bit Mersenne…

This article proposes new generators of that form with better equidistribution and “bit-mixing” properties for equivalent period length and speed and illustrates how this can reduce the impact of persistent dependencies among successive output values, which can be observed in certain parts of the period of gigantic generators such as the Mersenne twister.
