LATIN_EDGE Latin Edge Squares in M dimensions

LATIN_EDGE, a MATLAB library which makes Latin Edge Squares.

A Latin square is a selection of one point from each row and column of a square matrix or table. In M dimensions, the corresponding item is a set of N points, where, in each dimension, there is exactly one point whose coordinates are in a given "column" or range of values. To emphasize the use of higher dimensions, these objects are sometimes called Latin hypersquares.

Once a Latin square has been selected, the center of each subsquare is chosen to yield a Latin Edge Square dataset. This is the same technique that yields a Latin Center Square dataset, with the difference that the mapping from the Latin Square to the unit square is shifted in such a way that the lowest and highest possible coordinate values are 0.0 and 1.0, instead of 1/(2*N) and (2*N-1)/(2*N).

Here is an image of a Latin edge grid with spatial dimension M = 2 and number of points N = 10. Languages:

LATIN_EDGE is available in a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
