This chapter is devoted to large N asymptotic results for energy and point configurations on the multidimensional sphere \(S^d\) . We begin with a discussion of the property of uniform distribution on the sphere of a sequence of N-point configurations and provide necessary and sufficient conditions for such uniformity in terms of the notion of discrepancy.
