Discrepancy theory deals with point distribution in compact spaces, measuring the discrepancy between empirical distribution and target distribution. Most prominent are the star-discrepancy problem, asking for the optimal rate of convergence of the supremum of the discrepancy function, and the inverse of the star-discrepancy problem, asking for explicit constructions of point sets whose discrepancy depends at most polynomially on the dimension. The first problem is related to quasi-Monte Carlo integration, whereas the second problem seems more closely related to pseudo-random number generators. Point distributions on the unit sphere and point distributions with respect to non-uniform target measures are also of great interest.
