# GaussKronrod¶ class GaussKronrod(*args)

Parameters
maximumSubIntervalsint

The maximal number of subdivisions of the interval maximumErrorfloat

The maximal error between Gauss and Kronrod approximations.

GKRuleGaussKronrodRule

The rule that fixes the number of points used in the Gauss and Kronrod approximations.

Notes

The Gauss-Kronrod algorithm enables to approximate the definite integral: with , using both approximations : Gauss and Kronrod ones defined by: and: where , , , and .

The Gauss-Kronrod algorithm evaluates the integral using the Gauss and the Konrod approximations. If the difference between both approximations is greater that maximumError, then the interval is subdivided into 2 subintervals with the same length. The Gauss-Kronrod algorithm is then applied on both subintervals with the sames rules. The algorithm is iterative until the difference between both approximations is less that maximumError. In that case, the integral on the subinterval is approximated by the Kronrod sum. The subdivision process is limited by maximumSubIntervals that imposes the maximum number of subintervals.

The final integral is the sum of the integrals evaluated on the subintervals.

Examples

Create a Gauss-Kronrod algorithm:

>>> import openturns as ot
>>> algo = ot.GaussKronrod(100, 1e-8, ot.GaussKronrodRule(ot.GaussKronrodRule.G11K23))
