How does MATLAB generate Halton sequences

p = haltonset(d)
constructs a Halton quasi-random point set in d dimensions. Mathematically, the Halton set is basically d van der Corput sequences with different bases. So my question is, which base values does MATLAB use? I opened the code of HALTONSET and QRANDSET, but couldn't figure it out.
I ask this because I am working with Halton sets for my thesis and want to clarify how they are used in MATLAB.

You can get the Name of the sequence on which point set P is based from 'Type' property of P. So, the code snippet would be like below:
>> P = haltonset(d)
The base value depends on the dimension provided. If the dimension is 'd' the Bases will be the first 'd' primes. For example for dimension d=5, the Bases is [2,3,5,7,11].
