Problem with generating random numbers when performing a Monte carlo simulation in Matlab ?

8 views (last 30 days)
Hi there,
I am performing a Monte carlo simulation and this is the code for it.
clc; clear all;
num_simulations = 1000 ;
P_init = repmat(5,10,1)
numAC = length(P_init) ;
sumReduction = zeros(num_simulations,1);
for i = 1 : num_simulations
DRM_levels = [0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0]';
DRM_prob = [.25, .25, .25, .25];
s = RandStream('mlfg6331_64');
ReductionLevelsVector = randsample(s, DRM_levels , numAC, true, DRM_prob);
ActualReduction = P_init .* ReductionLevelsVector ;
sumReduction(i) = sum(ActualReduction) ;
end
However after performing num_simulations iterations I find that I am ended up getting the same result for sumReduction in each iteration. Is there something wrong with the Random number generator I am using, so it continues to generate the same random number at each iteration.
Can anyone please help me with this ?
Thanks.

When I run your code after writing randstrem before loop. But when I made plot of xcorr(sumReduction), It's almost trinangle. It means there is no chnge in correltion. Please help If I'm wrong.
