My question is probably worded incorrectly but here it is: I have (say) 3 discrete random variables: x1: has 15 levels (uniform pdf for simplicity) x2: has 3 levels (uniforms) x3: has 4 levels (uniform)
I want to generate n samples in such a way that:
- there are no repetitions of samples
- as n --> 15x3x4 the entire "full factorial" sample is generated;
- When generating (n+d) set of samples, the first n samples are the identical for any d
I tried to use Sobol quasi random sequence to generate this sample BUT I am not able to satisfy #1 above without retaining all prior points in memory and checking for duplicates. This is something I would like to avoid.
Thanks for your answers.
