Every (digital) (t, m, s)-net with m > t yields a (digital) (t, m−1, s)-net in the same base.

This propagation rule is due to [1, Lemma 2.8] for general nets and to [2, Lemma 3] for digital nets.


The new net Nʹ is obtained from N by selecting all points in [0, 1/b)×[0, 1)s−1N and scaling them back to [0, 1]s using an arbitrary affine transformation.
