Gauss-Chebyshev Type 1 Quadrature Rules

**QUADRATURE_RULES_CHEBYSHEV1**
is a dataset directory which
contains some examples of quadrature rules of Gauss-Chebyshev type 1.

The Gauss-Chebyshev type 1 quadrature rule is designed
to approximate integrals on the interval [-1,1], with a weight function of the
form **1/sqrt (1-x^2)**.

Gauss-Chebyshev type 1 quadrature assumes that the integrand we are considering has a form like:

Integral ( -1 <= x <= +1 ) f(x) / sqrt(1-x^2) dx

The *standard Gauss-Chebyshev type 1 quadrature rule * is used as follows:

Integral ( -1 <= x <= +1 ) f(x) / sqrt(1-x^2) dxis to be approximated by

Sum ( 1 <= i <= order ) w(i) * f(x(i))

For this directory, a quadrature rule is stored as three files, containing the weights, the points, and a file containing two points defining the endpoints of the region.

We consider a Gauss-Chebyshev type 1 quadrature rule of order 4.
