The classical linear congruential method for generating uniform pseudorandom numbers has some deficiencies that can render them useless for some simulation problems. This fact motivated the design and the analysis of nonlinear congruential methods for the generation of pseudorandom numbers. In this thesis, we aim to review the recent developments in the study of nonlinear congruential pseudorandom generators. Our exposition concentrates on inversive generators. We also describe the so-called power generator and the quadratic exponential generator which are particularly interesting for cryptographic applications. We give results on the period length and theoretical analysis of these generators. The emphasis is on the lattice structure, discrepancy and linear complexity of the generated sequences.
