Degree of Precision and quadrature formulaDevise a quadrature formula for Last edited by mathematics7 (20130403 16:54:03) #2 20130527 04:44:14
Re: Degree of Precision and quadrature formulaHi mathematics7; For this they use the physicists version. You seem to think that they can be used for the general f(x). Why do you think that? The error term is given as: where n is the number of points and epsilon is some point in the interval [a,b] that maximizes the error. There is also another type of error estimate that is similar to the Euler Mclaurin Summation Formula. If you want a specific example I can run of the weights and abscissas ( zeros ). In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
