Sledge-Hammer Integration
Ahner, Henry
College Mathematics Journal, v40 n1 p6-9 Jan 2009
Integration (here visualized as a pounding process) is mathematically realized by simple transformations, successively smoothing the bounding curve into a straight line and the region-to-be-integrated into an area-equivalent rectangle. The relationship to Riemann sums, and to the trapezoid and midpoint methods of numerical integration, is illustrated.
