Combining antithetic variates and control variates in simulation experiments
Wei-Ning Yang, Wei-Win Liou
Pages: 243-260
DOI: 10.1145/240896.240899
Antithetic variates and control variates are two well-known variance reduction techniques. We consider combining antithetic variates and control variates to estimate the mean response in a stochastic simulation experiment. When applying...

Radix-b extensions to some common empirical tests for pseudorandom number generators
Brad C. Johnson
Pages: 261-273
DOI: 10.1145/240896.240906
Empirical testing of computer generated pseudo-random sequences is widely practiced. Extensions to the coupon collector's and gap tests are presented that examine the distribution and independence of...

The mean square discrepancy of randomized nets
Fred J. Hickernell
Pages: 274-296
DOI: 10.1145/240896.240909
One popular family of low dicrepancy sets is the (t, m, s)-nets. Recently a randomization of these nets that preserves their net property has been introduced. In this article a formula for the mean square...

Analysis of bounded time warp and comparison with YAWNS
Phillip M. Dickens, David M. Nicol, Paul F. Reynolds, Jr., J. M. Duva
Pages: 297-320
DOI: 10.1145/240896.240913
This article studies an analytic model of parallel discrete-event simulation, comparing the YAWNS conservative synchronization protocol with Bounded Time Warp. The assumed simulation problem is a heavily loaded queuing network where the...
