At least that's what wri told me the last time. : Can be very sure that it's better than Simpson's Rule. On MathSource I searched on ""NIntegrate" and found two interesting documents: "The N Functions of Mathematica" and "Numerical Computation with Mathematica" They explain quite a few things on NIntegrate (and other routines) that isn't covered in the Mathematica book, such as, that NIntegrate in fact uses the mentioned Gauss Kronrod method. -- Best regards, Torben Winther Graversen http://www.gbar.dtu.dk/~immtwg ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
