Abstract In this paper we study a simply generalization of Couture and L'Ecuyer's Multiply with Carry generators. These new generators are superior in that they can achieve maximal period when a modulus that is a power of two is used, an important practical consideration.
Index Terms -- Pseudorandom number generator, multiply-with-carry generator, feedback-with-carry shift register, q-adic number.
