Generator Definitions and Parameters
TeX notation is used.
Most generators operate in the group (or field) Z_p and generate
a sequence y_n, n >= 0 of numbers in Z_p. p is called modulus.
In order to generate U([0,1[) distributed numbers, the y_n
are scaled: x_n = y_n / p.
If p is prime, one can define the inversion inv() so that
inv(a)*a mod p = 1 (a != 0)
inv(0) = 0
