This article discusses construction of maximally equidistributed (ME) linear feedback shift register generators by using linear output transformations. We introduce a new strategy to find linear output transformations attaining the ME property, and apply it to the WELL generators and the Mersenne Twister. As a result, we found a modified version of the WELL generators with the ME property, having fewer operations than the original ME WELL generators. We also found a ME Mersenne Twister which is faster than the WELL generators with a period of 219937- 1 on some platforms. The C codes of the obtained generators are available at∼harase/megenerators.html. © 2008 IMACS.
