Abstract: We modify the approach of H. Niederreiter and I. E. Shparlinski and improve one of their results on the distribution of inversive congruential pseudorandom numbers over a finite field for almost all initial values. However the main application of the new method is a similar result for pseudorandom numbers generated by iterations of a nonlinear permutation polynomial over a finite field, to which the original approach of H. Niederreiter and I. E. Shparlinski does not apply.
