Description

Abstract A shift-register sequence random number generator is programmed in Intel 8088/8086 and 8087 assembly language. Its performance is good in terms of its speed, long period and consistently producing reliable in extensive statistical tests. This generator may promote the microcomputers with 8088/8086 and 8087 to become a workstation for developing programs for Monte Carlo simulations of lattice field theories. Title of program: TRCG Catalogue Id: AAXI_v1_0 Nature of problem The subroutines generate a sequence of uniformly distributed real and integer pseudo random numbers with the maximum period of 2**250 - 1. They can be used in Monte Carlo simulations of many different physical problems. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AAXI_v1_0; TRCG; 10.1016/0010-4655(87)90072-5 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
