Abstract A procedure for generating sequences of LP_τvectors that are uniformly distributed in the multi-dimensional unit cube is presented here together with its implementation in ANSI-C. The high performance and the efficiency of the generating algorithm make sequences of LP_τvectors preferable to cope with some problems traditionally associated with Monte Carlo methods. The suggested implementation uses the recurrent algorithm whenever it is possible, or executes the algorithm producing LP_τv...
