3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

LPTAU generates quasi random sequences. These are uniformly distributed sets of L=M**N points in  the N-dimensional unit cube: I**N=[0,1]x...x[0,1]. These sequences are used as nodes for multidimensional integration; as searching points in global optimization; as trial points in multicriteria decision making; as quasi-random points for quasi Monte Carlo algorithms.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION:  Uses LP-TAU sequence generation (see references).

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The number of points that can be generated is L < 2**30. The dimension of the space cannot exceed 51.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Unlike pseudo-random sequences, quasi-random sequences provide uniform distribution in spaces with dimensions higher than three.
