SPHERE_DESIGN_RULE is a FORTRAN90 library which implements a number of Hardin and Sloane "spherical designs", which can be used for numerical quadrature over the surface of a sphere in 3D.
A set of N points on the surface of a 3D sphere is called a spherical T-design if the integral of any polynomial p(x,y,z) of degree at most T over the surface of the sphere is equal to the average value of the polynomial evaluated at the set of points.
Note that the degree of a polynomial in several variables is the highest degree of any of its terms, and that the degree of a term like X^{A}Y^{B}Z^{C} is A+B+C.
