Composite Gauss-Legendre Quadrature with Error Control
Prentice, J. S. C.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v42 n4 p557-564 2011
We describe composite Gauss-Legendre quadrature for determining definite integrals, including a means of controlling the approximation error. We compare the form and performance of the algorithm with standard Newton-Cotes quadrature. (Contains 1 table.)
