How to verify a uniform distribution on n-sphere

  1. Sep 28, 2011 #1
    suppose we have many dots on a unit n-sphere

    i suspect that they satisfy the uniform distribution

    but how to verify this?

    Divide the sphere into many parts & count the no. of dots in each part. If they're roughly equal,the distribution is close to being uniform.
