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`.
