HYPERBALL_INTEGRALS
Integrals Inside the Unit Hyperball in M Dimensions


HYPERBALL_INTEGRALS is a C library which returns the exact value of the integral of any monomial over the interior of the unit hyperball in M dimensions.

The interior of the unit hyperball in M dimensions is defined by

        sum ( 1 <= i <= m ) x(i)^2 <= 1
      

The integrands are all of the form

        f(x) = product ( 1 <= i <= m ) x(i)^e(i)
      
where the exponents are nonnegative integers. If any exponent is an odd integer, the integral will be zero. Thus, the "interesting" results occur when all exponents are even.
