Abstract: We analyze the weighted star discrepancy of so-called $ p$-sets which go back to definitions due to Korobov in the 1950s and Hua and Wang in the 1970s. Since then, these sets have largely been ignored since a number of other constructions have been discovered which achieve a better convergence rate. However, it has recently been discovered that the $ p$-sets perform well in terms of the dependence on the dimension.

We prove bounds on the weighted star discrepancy of the $ p$-sets which hold for any choice of weights. For product weights, we give conditions under which the discrepancy bounds are independent of the dimension $ s$. This implies strong polynomial tractability for the weighted star discrepancy. We also show that a very weak condition on the product weights suffices to achieve polynomial tractability.
