Extremal uniform distribution and random chord lengths
- 61 Downloads
This paper generalizes earlier results on the behaviour of uniformly distributed sequences in the unit interval [0,1] to more general domains. We devote special attention to the most interesting special case [0,1] d . This will naturally lead to a problem in geometric probability theory, where we generalize results by Anderssen, Brent, Daley and Moran about random chord lengths in high-dimensional unit cubes, thereby answering a question by Bailey, Borwein and Crandall.
