/* This is a Marsaglia multiply-with-carry generator with period
approximately 2^127. It is close in speed to a scrambled linear
generator, as its only 128-bit operations are a multiplication and sum;
it is an excellent generator based on congruential arithmetic.
As all MWC generators, it simulates a multiplicative LCG with
prime modulus m = 0xffebb71d94fcdaf8ffffffffffffffff and
multiplier given by the inverse of 2^64 modulo m. The modulus has a
particular form, which creates some theoretical issues, but at this
size a generator of this kind passes all known statistical tests,
except for very large size birthday-spacings tests in three dimensions
(as predicted from the theory). These failures are unlikely to have
any impact in practice.
For a generator of the same type with stronger theoretical guarantees,
consider a Goresky-Klapper generalized multiply-with-carry generator.
Alternatively, applying a xorshift to the result (i.e., returning
x ^ (x << 32) instead of x) will eliminate the birthday-spacings
failures.
Note that a previous version had a different MWC_A1. Moreover, now
the result is computed using the current state.
