Twisted GFSR generators
Makoto Matsumoto, Yoshiharu Kurita
Pages: 179-194
DOI: 10.1145/146382.146383
The generalized feed back shift register (GFSR) algorithm suggested by Lewis and Payne is a widely used pseudorandom number generator, but has the following serious drawbacks: (1) an initialization scheme to assure higher order equidistribution...

Implementation and tests of low-discrepancy sequences
Paul Bratley, Bennett L. Fox, Harald Niederreiter
Pages: 195-213
DOI: 10.1145/146382.146385
Low-discrepancy sequences are used for numerical integration, in simulation, and in related applications. Techniques for producing such sequences have been proposed by, among others, Halton, Sobol´, Faure, and Niederreiter. Niederreiter's...

Massively parallel and distributed simulation of a class of discrete event systems: a different perspective
Pirooz Vakili
Pages: 214-238
DOI: 10.1145/146382.146389
In this paper we propose a new approach to parallel and distributed simulation of discrete event systems. Most parallel and distributed discrete event simulation algorithms are concerned with the simulation of one “large” discrete...

Parallelism analyzers for parallel discrete event simulation
Yi-Bing Lin
Pages: 239-264
DOI: 10.1145/146382.146401
Discrete event simulation is usually time consuming. Recently, there has been a great deal of interest in using parallel computers to speed up the simulation process. Before the parallel simulation approach is applied, it is important to...
