# integrate

integration of an expression by quadrature

### Calling Sequence

x=integrate(expr,v,x0,x1 [,atol [,rtol]])

### Arguments

expr

Character string defining a Scilab expression.

v

Character string, the integration variable name)

x0

real number, the lower bound of integration

x1

vector of real numbers, upper bounds of integration

atol

real number (absolute error bound) Default value: 1.-8

rtol

real number, (relative error bound) Default value: 1e-14

x

vector of real numbers, the integral value for each x1(i).

### Description

computes : for i=1:size(x1,'*')

Where is given by the expression expr.

The evaluation hopefully satisfies following claim for accuracy: abs(I-x)<= max(atol,rtol*abs(I)) where I stands for the exact value of the integral.

### Restriction

the given expression should not use variable names with a leading %.

### Examples

x0=0;x1=0:0.1:2*%pi;
X=integrate('sin(x)','x',x0,x1);
norm(cos(x1)-(1-X))

x1=-10:0.1:10;
X=integrate(['if x==0 then 1,';
'else sin(x)/x,end'],'x',0,x1)
