Problem 24

Longest-period Lehmer LCG with m=11

Due: February 2
Points: 1

Find the parameter a that maximizes the period of a Lehmer linear congruential generator with \(m=11\) and for any seed value \(X_0\).

Use an example seed value to demonstrate and explain how you know this is the maximum period.
