18. Quasi-Random Sequences

This chapter describes functions for generating quasi-random sequences in arbitrary dimensions. A quasi-random sequence progressively covers a d-dimensional space with a set of points that are uniformly distributed. Quasi-random sequences are also known as low-discrepancy sequences. The quasi-random sequence generators use an interface that is similar to the interface for random number generators, except that seeding is not required—each generator produces a single sequence.

The functions described in this section are declared in the header file ‘gsl_qrng.h’.
