Combining Random number generators
Author:  Date: 2016-02-21 22:42
In your example for combining two random number generators (SFMT & Mother-of-All) you suggest adding the two numbers then taking the modulo 2^b of the sum. Why not just XOR the two numbers? Is there something inherently dangerous using XOR? I ask only for the simple reason that an XOR is computationally faster.

Do you have any thoughts pro or con on Xorshift1024* (See xorshift.di.unimi.it/) and any issues combining it with Mother-of-All and/or WELL44497 (See www.iro.umontreal.ca/~panneton/well/WELLRNG44497V2.c)

Thanks in advance,
