pub struct Mcg128Xsl64 { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

A PCG random number generator (XSL 128/64 (MCG) variant).

Permuted Congruential Generator with 128-bit state, internal Multiplicative Congruential Generator, and 64-bit output via “xorshift low (bits), random rotation” output function.

This is a 128-bit MCG with the PCG-XSL-RR output function, also known as pcg64_fast. Note that compared to the standard pcg64 (128-bit LCG with PCG-XSL-RR output function), this RNG is faster, also has a long cycle, and still has good performance on statistical tests.

Implementations

Multi-step advance functions (jump-ahead, jump-back)

The method used here is based on Brown, “Random Number Generation with Arbitrary Stride,”, Transactions of the American Nuclear Society (Nov. 1994). The algorithm is very similar to fast exponentiation.

Even though delta is an unsigned integer, we can pass a signed integer to go backwards, it just goes “the long way round”.

Using this function is equivalent to calling next_64() delta number of times.

Construct an instance compatible with PCG seed.

Note that PCG specifies a default value for the parameter:

  • state = 0xcafef00dd15ea5e5
