One-Level (Threshold) Testing

of the original sequence, p-values
p

are computed. For a subsequence
u
(
j
-1)
n
+1
,
u
(
j
 -1)
n
+2
, ...,
u
jn
 the test
j
fails if the value
p
j
falls outside the interval (
p
l
,
p
h
) ⊂ (0, 1). The sequence
u
1
,
u
2
, ...,
u
Kn
is considered suspicious when
r
or more test iterations failed.
Threshold testing for the VS generators was done with the following variable settings:
  1. ten iterations (
    K
    =10)
  2. the interval (
    p
    l
    ,
    p
    h
    ) equal to (0.05, 0.95)
  3. r
    = 5.
The chance to reject a 'good' sequence in this case is 0.16349374% ≅ 0.2%.
