The term ACG (Additive Congruential Generator) appears to have been used for a variant of the LCG (Linear Congruential Generator described by Knuth TAOCP Volume 2, Algorithm M).


ACG is not to be confused with ACORN (the Additive Congruential Random Number Generator) which is an entirely different algorithm which has different performance, theoretical, and empirical properties.
