Dear all,
(I have converted everything to InputForm)
Clear["Global`*"]
$Version
"5.2 for Microsoft Windows (June 20, 2005)"
***Let me consider the following code:
sampledPoints={};
g[x_?NumberQ]:=(AppendTo[sampledPoints,x];1/x)
***The function g is just 1/x, except it keeps track of the points at
which is evaluated, in a list called sampledPoints (see also
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/browse_thread/thread/11d40e17edbea9e9/b223cb3882539ac8?lnk=st&q=NIntegrate+SingularityDepth&rnum=3#b223cb3882539ac8).
***The function g[x]*Sin[x]=Sin[x]/x is a oscillatory function very
slowly convergent to zero as it can be seen from the following plot
Plot[g[x]*Sin[x],{x,0,30},PlotPoints->1000,PlotRange->{Automatic,{-0.3,1.1}}];
***Analytically the integral of g[x]*Sin[x] over the range
{x,0,Infinity} is equal to:
Integrate[f[x],{x,0,8}]//Timing
{0.04699999999999971*Second, Pi/2}
N[%[[2]]]
1.5707963267948966
***To get an approximation for this integral the option
Method->Oscillatory is used.
NIntegrate[g[x]*Sin[x],{x,0,8},Method->Oscillatory]
1.5707963267948966
***Can someone explain me what is the concluding remarks from the
following plots?
Length[sampledPoints]
3784
ListPlot[sampledPoints];
ListPlot[Take[sampledPoints,100]];
ListPlot[Take[sampledPoints,{100,2000}]];
ListPlot[Take[sampledPoints,{1500,3000}]];
***I have some ideas but I am a little in a mesh to put them in a row.
***I believe that the first ~30 points (0<x<3Pi) are the sampling
points not used in acceleration algorithm. Am I right?
***There is also an apparent periodicity. What does this mean?
***What happen near the point numbered 1700?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
