LATIN_RANDOM_DATASET
Generate Latin Random Square Datasets
LATIN_RANDOM_DATASET
is a C library which
creates a Latin Random Square dataset.
A Latin square, in M dimensional space, with N points,
can be thought of as being constructed by dividing each of the
M coordinate dimensions into N equal intervals.
The Ith coordinates of the N subsquares are defined
by assigning each possible value exactly once to one subsquare.
Such a set is called a Latin Square.
If we now select at random one point from each subsquare,
we have what we will term a "Latin Random Square".
Usage:
latin_random_dataset m n seed
where

m is the spatial dimension;

n is the number of points to generate;

seed is the initial seed value.
The data is written to the file latin_random_m_n.txt.

a C library which
computes a Latin Hypercube in M dimensions of N points, randomly
placed within their subsquares.
