A fast vectorised implementation of Wallace's normal random number generator
Wallace has proposed a new class of pseudo-random generators for normal variates. These generators do not require a stream of uniform pseudo-random numbers, except for initialisation. The inner loops are essentially matrix-vector multiplications and are very suitable for implementation on vector processors or vector/parallel processors such as the Fujitsu VPP300. In this report we outline Wallace's idea, consider some variations on it, and describe a vectorised implementation RANN4 which is...[Show more]
