New LevinIntegrate package for highly oscillatory integration

Hi all,

My LevinIntegrate package, for numerical integration of highly oscillatory
functions, is now available at
http://andrew.j.moylan.googlepages.com/levinintegrate.

LevinIntegrate is an automatic integrator based on Levin's method for highly
oscillatory integration. It outperforms NIntegrate (and other automatic
integrators) for a variety of irregularly oscillatory functions:

LevinIntegrate[Exp[I*Cosh[x]], {x, 0, 10}] // Timing
>> {0.02, -0.138718 + 1.20194 * I}

Compare with:

NIntegrate[Exp[I*Cosh[x]], {x, 0, 10}, MaxRecursion -> 50] // Timing
>> (warnings)
>> {4.546, -0.138718 + 1.20194 * I}

For more information or to download the package, see
http://andrew.j.moylan.googlepages.com/levinintegrate.

This is an early release of LevinIntegrate; it is still under development.
If you have any comments, suggestions, or problems, please do let me know of
them!
