TOMS738 is a FORTRAN77 library which implements ACM TOMS algorithm 738, which computes Niederreiter's low discrepancy sequence.
A low discrepancy or quasirandom sequence, such as the Faure, Halton, Hammersley, Niederreiter, or Sobol sequence, is "less random" than a pseudorandom number sequence, but more useful for such tasks as approximation of integrals in higher dimensions, and in global optimization. This is because low discrepancy sequences tend to sample space "more uniformly" than random numbers. Algorithms that use such sequences may have superior convergence.
The original, true, correct version of ACM TOMS Algorithm 738 is available through ACM: http://www.acm.org/pubs/calgo or NETLIB: http://www.netlib.org/toms/index.html
TOMS738 is available in a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version.

GFARIT must be run first, to set up a tables of addition and multiplication.
GFPLYS must be run second, to set up a table of irreducible polynomials.
GENIN can be run to generate a particular Niederreiter sequence. The program is interactive, and requires the user to specify a test integral, the spatial dimension, the base, and the number of "warm up" values to skip.
GENIN_TWO is a special, very efficient version of GENIN for the special case where the base is 2:
You can go up one level to the FORTRAN90 source codes.
