Romberg Integration

Keywords

Usage
romberg(f, a, b, maxit = 25, tol = 1e-12, ...)
Arguments
f
function to be integrated.
a, b
end points of the interval.
maxit
maximum number of iterations.
tol
requested tolerance.
...
variables to be passed to the function.
Details

Simple Romberg integration with an explicit Richardson method applied to a series of trapezoidal integrals. This scheme works best with smooth and non-oscillatory functions and needs the least number of function calls among all integration routines.

The function does not need to be vectorized.

Value

List of value, number or iterations, and relative error.

Note

Using a trapezoid formula Romberg integration will use 2*(2^iter-1)+iter function calls. By remembering function values this could be reduced to 2^iter+1 calls.

romberg(sin, 0, pi, tol = 1e-15)    #  2                 , rel.error 1e-15
romberg(exp, 0, 1,  tol = 1e-15)    #  1.718281828459044 , rel error 1e-15
                                    #  1.718281828459045 , i.e. exp(1) - 1

f <- function(x, p) sin(x) * cos(p*x)
romberg(f, 0, pi, p = 2)            #  2/3               , abs.err 1.5e-14
# value: -0.6666667, iter: 7, rel.error: 1e-12
