Detailed Description

template<class LDS, class PRS = RandomSequenceGenerator<MersenneTwisterUniformRng>> class QuantLib::RandomizedLDS< LDS, PRS >

Randomized (random shift) low-discrepancy sequence.

Random-shifts a uniform low-discrepancy sequence of dimension $ N $ by adding (modulo 1 for each coordinate) a pseudo-random uniform deviate in $ (0, 1)^N. $ It is used for implementing Randomized Quasi Monte Carlo.

The uniform low discrepancy sequence is supplied by LDS; the uniform pseudo-random sequence is supplied by PRS.

Both class LDS and PRS must implement the following interface:

            LDS::sample_type LDS::nextSequence() const;
            Size LDS::dimension() const;


LDS and PRS must have the same dimension $ N $


Inverting LDS and PRS is possible, but it doesn't make sense.

Possible enhancements

implement the other randomization algorithms


correct initialization is tested.

void nextRandomizer ()

update the randomizing vector and re-initialize the low discrepancy generator
