Specify how often the sequence is sampled
Alias: none
Argument(s): INTEGERLIST
Default: Vector of ones
sequence_leap
controls the "leaping" of terms in the sequence. The default is 1 for each variable, meaning that each term in the sequence be returned.
If the user specifies a sequence_leap of 2 for a variable, the points returned would be every other term from the QMC sequence.
The advantage to using a leap value greater than one is mainly for highdimensional sets of random deviates. In this case, setting a leap value to the next prime number larger than the largest prime base can help maintain uniformity when generating sample sets for high dimensions. For more information about the efficacy of leaped Halton sequences, see[73].
