- The problem of finding is closely
related to both differentiation rules and to formulae for
expanding in . If the expansion functions are
nice, we can plug in expansion for
**f**and do term by term integral. It divides into -
**NI.1,2:**assumed known at prescribed points (cf. Lagrange interpolation) -
**NI.3:**We can choose points where to be calculated (cf. Chebyshev expansion for interpolation) -
**NI.5:**Monte Carlo Integration -
**NI.5:**is most important as it is what you get in big problems with multidimensional integrals! -
**NI.4:**has remarks on use of parallel computers.A good compendium of rules will be found in M. Abramowitz and J. Stegun, ``Handbook of Mathematical Functions.''
