Numerical Integration: on Advanced Computer Systems (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)

This monograph is a comprehensive treatment of the theoretical and computational aspects of numerical integration.
The authors give a unique overview of the topic by bringing into line many recent research results not yet presented coherently; the extensive bibliography lists 268 items. Particular emphasis is given to the potential parallelism of numerical integration problems and to utilizing it by means of dynamic load distribution techniques. The book discusses the basics and provides methodologies for producing efficient and reliable software for numerical integration on advanced computer systems. The book addresses researchers, graduate students, and computational scientists.
