# CLENSHAW_CURTIS_RULE Clenshaw Curtis Quadrature Rules

CLENSHAW_CURTIS_RULE is a MATLAB program which generates a Clenshaw Curtis quadrature rule based on user input.

The rule is written to three files for easy use as input to other programs.

The standard Clenshaw Curtis quadrature rule is used as follows:

```        Integral ( A <= x <= B ) f(x) dx
```
is to be approximated by
```        Sum ( 1 <= i <= order ) w(i) * f(x(i))
```

### Usage:

clenshaw_curtis_rule ( order, a, b, 'filename' )
where
• order is the number of points in the quadrature rule;
• a is the left endpoint;
• b is the right endpoint;
• filename specifies the output filenames: namefile_w.txt, filename_x.txt, and filename_r.txt, containing the weights, abscissas, and interval limits.

### Languages:

CLENSHAW_CURTIS_RULE is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
