    Given a finite sequence UN = {u1,., uN} of points contained in the d-dimensional unit torus, we consider the L2 discrepancy between the integral of a given function and the Riemann sums with respect to translations of UN. We show that with positive probability, the L2 discrepancy of other sequences close to UN in a certain sense preserves the order of decay of the discrepancy of UN. We also study the role of the regularity of the given function.
