Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-899) A random crash of MersenneTwister random generator
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2012 12:48:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-899?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13498777#comment-13498777

Alexander Nozik commented on MATH-899:
--------------------------------------

I always can insert new version of the generator in the test program where I have found the
problem in the first place. Still I don't know what conditions are required to error for occur.
For now I'm using a JDKRandomGenerator and it works just fine so far.

> There is a very small probability that MersenneTwister generator gives a following error:

> java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 624
> in MersenneTwister.java line 253
> The error is completely random and its probability is about 1e-8.
> UPD: The problem most probably arises only in multy-thread mode.
