Abstract: We describe how to use dynamical systems to create good quantization of the underlying measure in the dynamical system. Measuring quantization involves considering various ways to analyze how well a set of points approximates a distribution. So we consider different quantization error measurements for various methods of generating sets of points that approximate a fixed distribution. These considerations lead naturallyto questions about shrinking targets in dynamical systems.
