The component-by-component construction algorithm constructs the generating vector for a rank-1 lattice one component at a time by minimizing the worst-case error in each step. This algorithm can be formulated elegantly as a repeated matrix-vector product, where the matrix-vector product expresses the calculation of the worst-case error in that step. As was shown in an earlier paper, this matrix-vector product can be done in time O(n log (n)) and with memory O(n) when the number of points n is prime. Here we extend this result to general n to obtain a total construction cost of O(sn log (n)) and memory of O(n) for a rank-1 lattice in s dimensions with n points. We thus obtain the same big-Oh result as for n prime.
