A Note on a Method for Generating Points Uniformly on N-Dimensional Spheres

A 704 program to generate points on a 20-sphere by the above algorithm produced approximately 100 points per minute. Using the simpler method of selecting acceptable random points from the 20-cube we would get about 40 points per century on the 704. We have made a rough check on the practical application of the algorithm by making chi-square tests on 2678… CONTINUE READING
