rstream.antithetic-methods: Methods for Function rstream.antithetic in Package 'rstream'

Description Usage Arguments Methods Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Get and change the antithetic flag for an "rstream" object in package rstream.

If the antithetic flag is on (TRUE) the "rstream" object returns antithetic random numbers.

Antithetic random streams return numbers which have smallest possible correlation (i.e. -1) to their respective counterparts. Thus instead of a number u the number 1-u is returned.

This is useful for variance reduction techniques in Monte Carlo computations.
