Theory and application of Marsaglia's monkey test for pseudorandom number generators
Ora E. Percus, Paula A. Whitlock
Pages: 87-100
DOI: 10.1145/210330.210331
A theoretical analysis is given for a new test, the “Monkey” test, for pseudorandom number sequences, which was proposed by Marsaglia. Selected results, using the test on several pseudorandom number generators in the literature, are...

Parallelism in sequential multiprocessor simulation models: a case study
Hatem Sellami, Sudhakar Yalamanchili
Pages: 101-128
DOI: 10.1145/210330.210333
The design and analysis of multiprocessor simulation models represents a complex and computationally demanding application that is a candidate for parallel simulation. This paper examines the application of conservative parallel discrete event...

Extending temporal logic to support high-level simulations
Alexander Tuzhilin
Pages: 129-155
DOI: 10.1145/210330.210336
A high-level simulation language based on temporal logic is described. The language combines a large set of temporal tenses and a rich class of high-level modeling primitives. Also an implementation of the language interpreter is presented....
