    The pseudo numbers are the essential basis of the simulation. Usually, all randomness involved in the model is obtained from a random number generator that produces a succession of values that are supposed to be realizations of a sequence of independent random variables and identically distributed uniforms U (0, 1). To be more explicit about the use of pseudo numbers, we will analyze concepts such as mixed or linear congruence method, multiplicative congruence method, additive congruence method.
