Universal generators for absolutely-continuous and integer-valued random variables are introduced. The proposal is based on a generalization of the rejection technique proposed by Devroye [The computer generation of random variables with a given characteristic function. Computers and Mathematics with Applications. 1981;7:547–552]. The method involves a dominating function solely requiring the evaluation of integrals which depend on the characteristic function of the underlying random variable. The proposal gives rise to simple algorithms which may be implemented in a few code lines and which may show noticeable performance even if some classical families of distributions are considered.
