**ABSTRACT**

For bases $\mathbf{b}=(b_1, \ldots, b_s)$ of not necessarily distinct integers $b_i \ge 2$, we employ $\mathbf{b}$-adic arithmetic to study questions in the theory of uniform distribution. A $ \mathbf{b}$-adic function system is constructed and the related Weyl criterionis proved. Relations between the uniform distribution of a sequence in the $\mathbf{b} $-adic integers, on the $s$-dimensional torus, and in the rational integers are established and several constructions of uniformly distributed sequences based on $ \bf{b}$-adic arithmetic are presented.
