Some techniques for using pseudorandom numbers in computer simulation

By T. Donnelly

Communications of the ACM, Vol. 12 No. 7, Pages 392-394

An alogorithm is described by which uniform pseudorandom integers may be used to construct binary “numbers” in which the probability that each bit in the word is a 1-bit and can assume any desired parameter value. Techniques for making use of such “numbers” in simulation programming are described.
