Nature of physical problem:
Any Monte Carlo calculation in physics or other subjects, particularly those involving massively parallel processing.

Method of solution
More than 2000 congruential sequences, each with a different multiplier may be used, either singly, or (preferentially) in a circulating manner. In the latter case, the familiar Marsaglia hyperplane pattern is disrupted, and a more chaotic distribution ensues.
