  1. We discretize the interval [0,1] with N d = 100 breakpoints. The numbers 99, 100 and 200 appearing in the formulæ in the table are normalization factors (respectively N d − 1, N d and 2N d ). β is a normalization constant for the divergent function 1/f,β= i = 1 N d 1 i =ln( N d )+γ where γ = 0.57721… is the Euler-Mascheroni constant.
