Niederreiter Quasirandom Datasets
Base = 2

NIEDERREITER2 is a dataset directory which contains points generated by the M-dimensional Niederreiter sequence using a base of 2.

The datasets are distinguished by the values of the following parameters:

The values of M and N are specified in the dataset file names.

A nonzero value of SKIP may be specified, to allow the sequence to "warm up". In this case, a recommended value is BASE**12 = 4096.
