test_triangle_integrals


test_triangle_integrals, a MATLAB code which defines a number of tests involving the integration of an integrand function over some specific triangle, not necessarily the unit triangle.

It is possible to invoke a particular function by number, or to try out all available functions, as demonstrated in the sample calling program.

For convenience, all the integrand functions have been scaled by a constant, so that the integral of the function over the specific domain is exactly 1.

The test functions include F(X,Y)=

  1. 1 on the unit triangle.
  2. x on the unit triangle.
  3. y on the unit triangle.
  4. x2 on the unit triangle.
  5. x*y on the unit triangle.
  6. y2 on the unit triangle.
  7. x3 on the unit triangle.
  8. x4 on the unit triangle.
  9. x5 on the unit triangle.
  10. x^(-0.2) remapped to (1,0), (5,0), (5,1).
  11. (x+y)^(-0.2) on the unit triangle.
  12. (1-x-y)^(-0.2) remapped to (-1,-3), (3,-2), (-1,2).
  13. (x*y)^(-0.2) remapped to (0,0), (-7,0), (0,-3).
  14. 1/sqrt(x) + 1/sqrt(y) + 1/sqrt(x+y) on the unit triangle.
  15. 1/sqrt(1-x-y) on the unit triangle.
  16. log(x*y) on the unit triangle.
  17. 1/sqrt(|x-1/4|) + 1/sqrt(|y-1/2|) on the unit triangle.
  18. log ( x + y ) on the unit triangle.
  19. sin ( x ) cos ( 5 y ) on the unit triangle.
  20. sin ( 11 x ) cos ( y ) on the unit triangle.
  21. 1 / r on the unit triangle,
    r = sqrt ( x^2+y^2).
  22. log ( r ) / r on the unit triangle,
    r = sqrt ( x^2+y^2).

The library includes a routines to define the integrand function, the triangle over which the integral is to be carried out, and a title for the problem. Thus, for each integrand function, four routines are supplied. For instance, for function #4, we have the routines:

So once you have the calling sequences for these routines, you can easily evaluate the function, or integrate it between the appropriate limits, or compare your estimate of the integral to the exact value.

Moreover, since the same interface is used for each function, if you wish to work with problem 16 instead, you simply change the "04" to "07" in your routine calls.

If you wish to call all of the functions, then you simply use the generic interface, which again has four routines, but which requires you to specify the problem number as an extra input argument:

Finally, some demonstration routines are built in for simple quadrature methods. These routines include

and can be used with any of the sample integrands.
