COMMENTS

The linear congruential generator for pseudorandom numbers was proposed by Derrick Henry Lehmer: "Mathematical methods in large-scale computing units," in Proceedings of the 2nd Symposium on Large-Scale Digital Calculating Machinery, Cambridge, MA, 1949, pp. 141-146, Cambridge, MA, 1951, Harvard University Press. The method is often noted as the earliest published method for generating pseudorandom numbers. It is still in use today.
