2 A Review of the Definite Integral

3 Riemann Sum  A summation of the form is called a Riemann sum.

19 Discussion  From our experiments:  From the definition of Simpson’s rule:  Why? Why Simpson’s rule is “more accurate than it ought to be”?

31 5.5 Application: Stirling’s Formula  Stirling’s formula is an interesting and useful way to approximate the factorial function, n!, for large values of n. Use Stirling ’ s formula to show that for all x. Example

32 5.6 Gaussian Quadrature  Gaussian quadrature is a very powerful tool for approximating integrals.  The quadrature rules are all base on special values of weights and abscissas (called Gauss points)  The quadrature rule is written in the form weights Gauss points

34 Example 5.8

35 Question k ×

36 Discussion  The high accuracy of Gaussian quadrature then comes from the fact that it integrates very-high-degree polynomials exactly.  We should choose N=2n-1, because a polynomial of degree 2n-1 has 2n coefficients, and thus the number of unknowns ( n weights plus n abscissas) equals the number of equations.  Taking N=2n will yield a contradiction.

48 5.7 Extrapolation Methods  One of the most important ideas in computational mathematics is— We can take the information from a few approximations and Use that to both estimate the error in the approximation and generate a significantly improved approximation  In this section we will embark on a more detailed study of some of these ideas.
