A sequence s 1, s 2, … in U = [0, 1) is said to be uniformly distributed if, in the limit, the number of sj falling in any given subinterval is proportional to its length. Equivalently, s 1, s 2, … is uniformly distributed if the sequence of equiweighted atomic probability measures ?N (sj ) = 1/N, supported by the initial N-segments s 1, s 2, …, s N, converges weakly to Lebesgue measure on U. This notion immediately generalizes to any topological space with a corresponding probability measure on the Borel sets.
