hello everybody,
i am facing a problem in the numerical integration of a vector-valued
function using Mathematica.
as the result of some operation on the variable x  defined by  f[x_]=...
i get a list of numbers {f1,f2,f3,...,fn} each of which depends on the
variable x.
the bad point is that the fi can not be evaluated one by one. for some
chosen value of x i can only calculate the whole list of the fis.
now i need to integrate each of the fis over x. of course i could
intgrate each list element separately using NIntegrate:


but since the evaluation of the list f[x] is very time consuming i would
like to somehow integrate the whole list at once which is not possible
with NIntegrate.

did anybody encounter this problem, too? does anybody know a useful
package  or any solution?
