Alessandro, I am not sure about what you did in this statement: > ff[x,y]=ListInterpolation[Table[E^((i+j)/20.*(I+1)),{i,1,51},{j,1,51}],{xx,y y}], > where xx,yy are the arrays of the x,y values. i.e., what is meant by "the arrays of x,y values." xx and yy in your expression should be the limits on the x and y variables. Here is an example: In[1]: gg = ListInterpolation[ Table[E^((i + j)/20.*(I + 1)), {i, 1, 51}, {j, 1, 51}], {{1, 51}, {1, 51}}] Out[1]: InterpolatingFunction[{{1., 51.}, {1., 51.}}, "<>"] Then In[2]: NIntegrate[gg[x, y], {x, 1, 51}, {y, 1, 51}] Out[2]: -33124.96551224837 - 17234.035867321498*I Hope this helps.
