# DMelt:Numeric/5 Integration

# Integration

Integral assigns numbers to functions in a way that can describe displacement, area, volume, and other concepts that arise by combining infinitesimal data. You can use DataMelt to perform numeric integration. It contains several Java libraries to do this.

- Apache Common math - Apache common math library
- Jas integration - Jas integration package for rational functions

In addition to the above, DataMelt has several classes to perform integration. They are based on jhplot.F1D class. Let us give a small example showing how to integrate [math]cos(x)^3[/math] using a trapezium rule. We will integrate this function between 1 and 10 using 10k iterations.

from jhplot import F1D f1=F1D('cos(x)^3') print f1.integral(10000,1,10)

The output is "-1.13321491381".

Let us perform integration of a function [math]\sin(1.0/x)*x^2+10*\cos(x)^3[/math] using 5 alternative methods: Gauss4, Gauss8, Richardson, Simpson, Trapezium. The code that does a benchmark of all 5 methods is given below:

The output of the above code is:

gauss4 = 49.1203116758 time (ms)= 155.088374 gauss8 = 49.1203116758 time (ms)= 57.245523 richardson = 49.1203116758 time (ms)= 53.369496 simpson = 49.1203116758 time (ms)= 27.088362 trapezium = 49.1203116663 time (ms)= 20.023047

# Integrating rational functions

The Jas integration package allows integration of rational functions.

Thus, a function is called rational if it is written as $A(x)/B(x)$, where A and B are polynomials. In this section we will show how to integrate rational functions symbolically.

The answer is:

A=x^7 - 24 x^4 - 4 x^2 + 8 x - 8 B=x^8 + 6 x^6 + 12 x^4 + 8 x^2 Result: [1 , x, 6 x, x^4 + 4 x^2 + 4 , ( -1 ) x + 3 , x^2 + 2 ] , [0, 1 , x]
