Abstract

An adaptive quadrature routine is presented here, that uses a dynamically updated estimate of the total integral value for convergence. For continuous piecewise-smooth functions, this enables comparable accuracies with existing schemes that have a coarse estimate of the total integral value with fewer number of quadrature points.
