Hello, Realised that the two commands copied from Mathematica do not appear in the actual form in my previous message. Sorry for using the wrong text form. What I meant were as flow: 1. NIntegrate[f(x),{x,0,n}] 2. N[Integrate[f(x),{x,0,n}]] Cheers. Sim Chiam -----Original Message----- From: Chiam Sim Ai [mailto:engp8949 at nus.edu.sg] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg22368] [mg22323] Numerical Integration Dear all, I would like to find out the difference between the following two commands on Mathematica: 1. <<...OLE_Obj...>> 2. <<...OLE_Obj...>> Is there anything wrong in writing in the 2nd way? Can anyone tell me the difference between the algorithm used by Mathematica (Versions 3 & 4) in performing the above two operations? For a same problem, both commands give the same numerical answer but the 2nd has an error message. Can anyone tell me why? Best regards, Sim A. Chiam National University of Singapore
