Chapter 16: Numerical Integration


If we do not know how to evaluate an integral exactly, we can use methods for evaluating them approximately. We describe some of these here.



16.1 Some Rules for Approximate Evaluation

       16.1.1 The Trapezoid Rule

       16.1.2 Simpson's rule

16.2 Geometric Interpretation

16.3 A Numerical Integrator
