Set the seed values, and number of states for the GPU.

Share:

Description

This function enables the user to set a seed value for reproducible random number generation. It also allows the user to set the number of states to tune the efficiency of random number generator for the GPU.

Usage

1
gset.seed(seed=unclass(Sys.time()), total_states=as.integer(32*14*16), silent=TRUE)

Arguments

seed

Must be a positive integer.

total_states

Random numbers are generated from separate streams in parallel with each stream having a current state. This variable must be a positive integer. It is recommended that the integer be a multiple of 32. If the number of states are two small or two large the GPU efficiency may be poor.

silent

Don't print any messages besides errors.
