HALTON: RATS procedure to generate Halton sequences
AbstractGenerates an n-vector of the Halton sequence for the given base (which should be a prime number). Halton sequences are deterministic "low-discrepancy" sequences which fill the unit cube relatively uniformly (with a different base for each dimension) allowing numerical integrals to be estimated more accurately for a given number of function evaluations than would be possible with truly random numbers.
