Tables of maximally equidistributed
combined LFSR generators
Abstract: We give the results of a computer search for maximally equidistri-
buted combined linear feedback shift register (or Tausworthe) random number generators, whose components are trinomials of degrees slightly less than 32 or 64. These generators are fast and have good statistical properties.
