An arithmetical rule for estimating the area under a curve where the values of an odd number of ordinates, including those at each end, are known.
- Fixation probabilities to be used in Equation 10 were calculated by numerical integration using Simpson's rule.
- Here is a program to compute the Simpson's rule approximation to an integral, along with some examples.
- We shall present new error inequalities for the modified Simpson's rule which quantify more precisely the error.
