Java Program to Implement Park-Miller Random Number Generation Algorithm

This is java program to generate the random numbers, using the Park-Miller algorithm.Park–Miller random number generator (after Stephen K. Park and Keith W. Miller), is a variant of linear congruential generator (LCG) that operates in multiplicative group of integers modulo n. A general formula of a random number generator (RNG) of this type is, x(n+1) = g*x(n) mod n.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Implement Park-Miller Random Number Generation Algorithm. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
