Abstract
Five primitive root multipliers for the prime-modulus 31 random number g3 enerator X.i+,l, = AX . mod 2 -1 have been i subjected to a battery of runs tests and serial tests for pairs and triples. Recommendations regarding these multipliers are made. Interesting results regarding the relative timings of the multipliers are presented. We also give results for the generators with these multipliers after they have been self-shuffled. A case where self-shuffling produced adverse results is also presented.
