<p>The following quasi-random sequence algorithms are available,
</p>
<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fqrng_005fniederreiter_005f2"></a>Generator: <strong>gsl_qrng_niederreiter_2</strong></dt>
<dd><p>This generator uses the algorithm described in Bratley, Fox,
Niederreiter, <cite>ACM Trans. Model. Comp. Sim.</cite> 2, 195 (1992). It is
valid up to 12 dimensions.
</p></dd></dl>

<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fqrng_005fsobol"></a>Generator: <strong>gsl_qrng_sobol</strong></dt>
<dd><p>This generator uses the Sobol sequence described in Antonov, Saleev,
<cite>USSR Comput. Maths. Math. Phys.</cite> 19, 252 (1980). It is valid up to
40 dimensions.
</p></dd></dl>

<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fqrng_005fhalton"></a>Generator: <strong>gsl_qrng_halton</strong></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fqrng_005freversehalton"></a>Generator: <strong>gsl_qrng_reversehalton</strong></dt>
<dd><p>These generators use the Halton and reverse Halton sequences described
in J.H. Halton, <cite>Numerische Mathematik</cite> 2, 84-90 (1960) and
B. Vandewoestyne and R. Cools <cite>Computational and Applied
Mathematics</cite> 189, 1&amp;2, 341-361 (2006).  They are valid up to 1229
dimensions.
