Abstract:
The error bounds of the rectangular, trapezoidal and Simpson's rules which are commonly used in approximating the integral of a function (f(x)) over an interval ([a,b]) were estimated. The error bounds of the second, and third generating functions of the GaussLegendre quadrature rules were also estimated in this paper. It was shown that for an (f(t)) whose smoothness is increasing, the accuracy of the fourth, sixth and eighth error bound of the second, and third generating functions of the GaussLegendre quadrature rule does not increase. It was also shown that the accuracy of the fourth error bound of the Simpson's (1/3) and (3/8) rules does not increase.
