<p>This chapter describes functions for generating quasi-random sequences
in arbitrary dimensions.  A quasi-random sequence progressively covers a
<em>d</em>-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&mdash;each generator produces a single sequence.
</p>
<p>The functions described in this section are declared in the header file
<samp>gsl_qrng.h</samp>.
