- (iii) Points of Technique
- Note, when evaluating , one can
choose between two strategies
- (a) Change of variable. For example, converts integral to form.
- (b) Newton-Cotes (or Gauss---see NI.3) formula with
weight function .

- A third strategy is to change the integration range (e.g., to take
**b**from to finite value). - How do we choose between strategies and how to implement them?
