- 1. Approximate Integration T- 1-855-694-8886 Email- info@iTutor.com By iTutor.com
- 2. Integration Techniques There are two situations in which it is impossible to find the exact value of a definite integral. The first situation arises from the fact that, in order to evaluate using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTC), we need to know an anti-derivative of f. However, sometimes, it is difficult, or even impossible, to find an anti-derivative. For example, it is impossible to evaluate the following integrals exactly: The second situation arises when the function is determined from a scientific experiment through instrument readings or collected data. There may be no formula for the function : 21 1 3 0 1 1x e dx x dx ( ) b a f x dx © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
- 3. Approximate Integration We already know one method for approximate integration. Recall that the definite integral is defined as a limit of Riemann sums. So, any Riemann sum could be used as an approximation to the integral. If we divide [a, b] into n subintervals of equal length ∆x = (b – a)/n, we have: where xi* is any point in the i th subinterval [xi -1, xi]. Ln Approximation If xi* is chosen to be the left endpoint of the interval, then xi* = xi -1 and we have: The approximation Ln is called the left endpoint approximation. 1 ( ) ( *) nb ia i f x dx f x x 1 1 ( ) ( ) nb n ia i f x dx L f x x ------- Equation 1 © iTutor. 2000-2013.

- 4. If f(x) ≥ 0, the integral represents an area and Equation 1 represents an approximation of this area by the rectangles shown here. Rn Approximation If we choose xi* to be the right endpoint, xi* = xi and we have: The approximation Rn is called right endpoint approximation. 1 ( ) ( ) nb n ia i f x dx R f x x © iTutor. 2000-2013.

The endpoints of the four subintervals begin at a = 1 and are spaced 1 unit apart. The first midpoint is at a + Δx/2 = 1.5. The midpoints are also spaced 1 unit apart. According to the midpoint rule, the integral is approximately equal to 3;32 4 1 3 ndxx © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved

- 9. The reason for the name can be seen from the figure, which illustrates the case f(x) ≥ 0. The area of the trapezoid that lies above the i th subinterval is: If we add the areas of all these trapezoids, we get the right side of the Trapezoidal Rule. 1 1 ( ) ( ) [ ( ) ( )] 2 2 i i i i f x f x x x f x f x © iTutor. 2000-2013.
