Simulation Given a random variable X with CDF FX(x), there are situations that we want to obtain a set of n random numbers (i.e., a random sample of size n) from FX(.) . The advances in computer technology have made it possible to generate such random numbers using computers.

**Pseudo-random number generation**

Pseudorandom number generation (PRNG) is the technique of generating a sequence of numbers that appears to be a random sample of random variables uniformly distributed over (0,1). 3/27/2017 Laboratory for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling, Dept of Bioenvironmental Systems Engineering, National Taiwan Univ.

63
A commonly applied approach of PRNG starts with an initial seed and the following recursive algorithm (Ross, 2002) modulo m where a and m are given positive integers, and the above equation means that is divided by m and the remainder is taken as the value of 3/27/2017 Laboratory for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling, Dept of Bioenvironmental Systems Engineering, National Taiwan Univ.

64
**The quantity is then taken as an approximation to the value of a uniform (0,1) random variable.**

Such algorithm will deterministically generate a sequence of values and repeat itself again and again. Consequently, the constants a and m should be chosen to satisfy the following criteria: For any initial seed, the resultant sequence has the “appearance” of being a sequence of independent uniform (0,1) random variables. For any initial seed, the number of random variables that can be generated before repetition begins is large. The values can be computed efficiently on a digital computer. 3/27/2017 Laboratory for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling, Dept of Bioenvironmental Systems Engineering, National Taiwan Univ.

65
A guideline for selection of a and m is that m be chosen to be a large prime number that can be fitted to the computer word size. For a 32-bit word computer, m = and a = result in desired properties (Ross, 2002). 3/27/2017 Laboratory for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling, Dept of Bioenvironmental Systems Engineering, National Taiwan Univ.
