Local antithetic sampling with scrambled nets
Numerical experimentation with the more sophisticated and widely adopted Sobol sequences , shows that their effective thickness in (bulk) Ed does significantly improve on the random-covering value, but it grows closer to the latter as d increases (see Table V and the left panel of Fig. 7).

Sobol’ uses what is conceptually an n × ∞ matrix of values from the unit interval.
Consistency of Markov chain quasi-Monte Carlo on continuous state spaces
Sobol’ shows that the error converges as O(1/n) in the very special case where the transition probabilities are all rational numbers with denominator a power of 2.
Consistency of Markov chain quasi-Monte Carlo on continuous state spaces
Sobol’ and two anonymous reviewers for helpful comments.
Consistency of Markov chain quasi-Monte Carlo on continuous state spaces
We have investigated empirically the behaviour of two such sequences: the Sobol’ sequence, described in , and the Niederreiter base-two sequence, described in .
Multidimensional sampling for simulation and integration: measures, discrepancies, and quasi-random numbers
We have calculated the quadratic discrepancy for four different quasi-random generators: Richtmyer, van der Corput-Halton, Sobol’ and Niederreiter-basetwo, all from one to twenty dimensions.
Multidimensional sampling for simulation and integration: measures, discrepancies, and quasi-random numbers
The Sobol’ and Niederreiter programs were kindly provided by Paul Bratley and Bennet Fox.
Multidimensional sampling for simulation and integration: measures, discrepancies, and quasi-random numbers
Their Sobol’ program is implemented for up to 40 dimensions, and we have extended their Niederreiter-base-two programs to work up to 25 dimensions.
Multidimensional sampling for simulation and integration: measures, discrepancies, and quasi-random numbers
As an illustration, we give in figure 14 the discrepancy for the Sobol’ sequence in dimensions 9 to 17, as a function of the number of points.
Multidimensional sampling for simulation and integration: measures, discrepancies, and quasi-random numbers
We use the Monte Carlo (MC) technique (Podznyakov, Sobol, & Sunyaev 1983; Canfield, Howard, & Liang 1987; Liang 1993; Hua, Kazanas, & Titarchuk 1997) to simulate relativistic photon transport.

Typically, the maximum force is reduced by two orders of magnitude with respect to the initial Sobol sequence and provides a visually more regular particle distribution, see middle panel in Fig. 14.
