Re: Gauss-Kronrod algorithm

Although this is from the documentation of the upcoming version of
Mathematica
I suggest you to have a look!

http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/NIntegrate.html

Now let's see some things.

1) Some useful links

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaussian_quadrature
http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu/topics/gauss_quadrature.html
(amazing site!)
http://www.sitmo.com/eqcat/13
http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&lr=&q=%22Calculation+of+Gauss=
-Kronrod+Quadrature+Rules%22
(the first article is of special notice)

2) Some Mathematica code

In[64]:=
oo[x_] = Exp[-5*x^4] + (1/2)*x;

In[71]:=
Integrate[oo[x], {x, -3, 5}]
{N[%], ({#1, NIntegrate[oo[x], {x, -3, 5}, Method -> #1]} & ) /@
{Trapezoidal, DoubleExponential, GaussKronrod}}

Out[71]=
4 + (8*Gamma[5/4] - Gamma[1/4, 405] - Gamma[1/4, 3125])/(4*5^(1/4))

Out[72]=
{5.212295737874928, {{Trapezoidal, 5.212295737874928},
{DoubleExponential, 5.212295737874928},
   {GaussKronrod, 5.212295737874985}}}

In[73]:=
(ListPlot[Reap[NIntegrate[oo[x], {x, -3, 3}, Method -> #1,
EvaluationMonitor :> Sow[x]]][[2,1]], PlotLabel -> #1] & ) /@
{Trapezoidal, DoubleExponential, GaussKronrod};

I hope I help you a bit!

Dimitris
