toms659, a FORTRAN90 code which computes elements of the Sobol quasirandom sequence.
A quasirandom or low discrepancy sequence, such as the Faure, Halton, Hammersley, Niederreiter or Sobol sequences, 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 text of many ACM TOMS algorithms is available online through ACM: https://calgo.acm.org/ or NETLIB: https://www.netlib.org/toms/index.html.
