Numerical Integration

Publisher Summary

This chapter discusses numerical integration, which is used to evaluate a definite integral when there is no closed-form expression for the integral or when the explicit function is not known and the data is available in tabular form only. Numerical integration (or quadrature) consists of methods to find the approximate area under the graph of the function f(x) between two x-values. The simplest of these methods uses the trapezoid rule, which is illustrated in this chapter.
