POWER_RULE
Multidimensional Quadrature Rule Creation


POWER_RULE is a FORTRAN90 program which creates a power rule, that is, a multidimensional quadrature rule formed as a repeated product of a single one-dimensional quadrature rule.

Note that the three files that define the quadrature rule are assumed to have related names, of the form

When running the program, the user only enters the common prefix part of the file names, which is enough information for the program to find all three files.

For information on the form of these files, see the QUADRATURE_RULES directory listed below.

Usage:

power_rule prefix dim_num
where

If the arguments are not supplied on the command line, the program will prompt for them.

The program will create these output files, which define the multidimensional quadrature rule:

power_x.txt
a file containing the abscissas of the power rule;
power_w.txt
a file containing the weights of the power rule;
power_r.txt
a file containing the range of the power rule;

Examples and Tests:

As an example, we start with a 1D Clenshaw Curtis rule of order 3:

We give the command

power_rule cc3 2
to create a Clenshaw Curtis product rule of order 3x3 for a 2D region. The files which are created include:
