Hello all, I was wondering what exactly the Method -> Oscillatory option of Mathematica's NIntegrate function does. In the help it says that it uses a transformation to handle certain function, like exponentials. My question is this: Does it use a specific numerical integration algorithm designed to work in these cases, or does it just somehow transform the integral so that it can be solved using the standard method (which it says is the Gauss-Kronrod)? If it uses a different algorithm, what is this algorithm commonly called? Thanks, -John Hawkin
