We mainly study multivariate (uniform or Gaussian) integration defined for integrand spaces Fd such as weighted Sobolev spaces of functions of d variables with smooth mixed derivatives. The weight ?j moderates the behavior of functions with respect to the jth variable. For ?j?1, we obtain the classical Sobolev spaces whereas for decreasing ?j's the weighted Sobolev spaces consist of functions with diminishing dependence on the jth variables. We study the minimal errors of quadratures that use n… 
Tractability of Multivariate Integration for Periodic Functions
It is shown that tractability and strong tractability in the worst case setting hold under the same assumptions on the weights of the Korobov space as for the restricted classes of quadrature rules.

Finite-order weights imply tractability of multivariate integration
Periodization strategy may fail in high dimensions
A number of cases are presented suggesting that this conjecture that all lattice rules fail for large d are indeed true, but the most interesting case, when the sum of the weights of the corresponding Sobolev space is bounded in d, remains open.
Tractability of multivariate approximation over a weighted unanchored Sobolev space: Smoothness sometimes hurts
We study d-variate L2-approximation for a weighted unanchored Sobolev space having smoothness m ≥ 1. Folk wisdom would lead us to believe that this problem should become easier as its smoothness
Strong tractability of multivariate integration using quasi-Monte Carlo algorithms
It is proved in a constructive way that multivariate integration in some weighted Sobolev spaces is strongly tractable with e-exponent equal to 1, which is the best possible value under a stronger assumption than Sloan and Wozniakowski's assumption.
The error bounds and tractability of quasi-Monte Carlo algorithms in infinite dimension
It is shown constructively using the Halton sequence that the e-exponent of tractability is 1, which implies that infinite dimensional integration is no harder than one-dimensional integration.
Liberating the dimension


Integration and approximation in arbitrary dimensions
It is proved that integration is strongly tractable for some weighted Korobov and Sobolev spaces as well as for the Hilbert space whose reproducing kernel corresponds to the covariance function of the isotropic Wiener measure.
The Complexity of the Poisson Problem for Spaces of Bounded Mixed Derivatives
This paper seeks to overcome intractability of the Poisson problem by allowing F to be the unit ball of a space H of bounded mixed derivatives with a xed multi index with positive entries and shows that for any positive multi index the Poison problem is strongly tractable.
A Note on the Complexity of Solving Poisson's Equation for Spaces of Bounded Mixed Derivatives
A strong tractability result of the order O(e−1) is given and this paper provides a practically usable hierarchical basis finite element method of this complexity O( e−1), i.e., without logarithmic terms growing exponentially in d, at least for the authors' sparse grid setting with its underlying smoothness requirements.
Tractability and Strong Tractability of Linear Multivariate Problems
This work provides necessary and sufficient conditions for linear multivariate problems to be tractable or strongly tractable in the worst case, average case, randomized, and probabilistic settings, and considers linearMultivariate problems over reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces, showing that such problems are strong tractable even in the best case setting.
The inverse of the star-discrepancy depends linearly on the dimension
We study bounds on the classical ∗-discrepancy and on its inverse. Let n∞(d, e) be the inverse of the ∗-discrepancy, i.e., the minimal number of points in dimension d with the ∗-discrepancy at most
Tractability of Tensor Product Linear Operators
The worst case setting for approximating multivariate tensor product linear operators defined over Hilbert spaces is dealt with, and it is proved that tractability of linear functionals depends on the given space of functions.

An upper bound is obtained, which is independent of d, for the number, n(?, d), of points for which discrepancy is at most ?, n (?, d) ? 7.26??2.454, ?d, ? ? 1.
When Are Quasi-Monte Carlo Algorithms Efficient for High Dimensional Integrals?
It is proved that the minimalworst case error of quasi-Monte Carlo algorithms does not depend on the dimensiondiff the sum of the weights is finite, and the minimal number of function values in the worst case setting needed to reduce the initial error by ? is bounded byC??p, where the exponentp? 1, 2], andCdepends exponentially on thesum of weights.

It is shown that these multivariate problems defined over weighted tensor product Hilbert spaces of functions f of d variables are sometimes tractable even with a worst-case assurance.

An error bound for multidimensional quadrature is derived that includes the Koksma-Hlawka inequality as a special case and includes as special cases the L p -star discrepancy and P α that arises in the study of lattice rules.
