This is a pure C# implementation of a XORSHIFT-ADD (XSadd) pseudo-random number generator.


  • Small internal state size (128bit)
  • Long period(2^128-1)
  • Save and restore internal state anytime.
  • Can Retrieve the arbitrary n-step jumped state.


  • There is the implementation of almost same semantics of "xsadd.c" and "xsadd.h". (XorShiftAddCore)
  • There is the implementation of Inherited by System.Random. (XorShiftAdd)
  • Xml documentations are available (but currently partially)
  • Compared tests from original library are passed.

ver 0.2

Changed XorShiftAdd psesudo-random generator's internal state from Span to InternalState struct. Unfortunately this is a devastating changes from ver 0.1 .
