Subject [jira] [Updated] (MATH-826) RFE: low discrepancy sequence generator
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 19:19:16 GMT


Thomas Neidhart updated MATH-826:


First draft of a random generator based on a Sobol sequence.

The user can select the dimension when creating the generator. Thus when a user is interested
in 3d points, 3 generators are needed.

The generator includes direction numbers from []
for the first 100 dimensions (they are under BSD license), but custom ones can be provided.

Does this make sense?

> Support for such a generator is poor in Java and existing implementations tend to be
standalone and do not provide a user friendly API. Ideally, such a generator would implement
Random, but using the Apache Commons Math random API would be acceptable.
