CCN_RULE Nested Clenshaw Curtis Quadrature Rules

CCN_RULE is a C++ program which generates a quadrature rule based on a nested set of points inspired by the Clenshaw Curtis quadrature rule.

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

The nested 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))
```

If the order of the CCN rule is 1, 3, 5, 9, 17, 33, or in general 2^L+1, then the rule is identical to the Clenshaw Curtis rule.

Otherwise, the rule is based on a subset of the points in the Clenshaw Curtis rule of next highest order in the sequence 2^L+1.

The CCN rule has no special accuracy properties, except that the rules of odd order are symmetric, and hence get one extra degree of precision. Moreover, the rules of even order have a single unpaired point which is assigned weight zero, so that it is equivalent to the immediately preceding rule of odd order.

Usage:

ccn_rule n a b filename
where
• n is the order, or 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:

CCN_RULE is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
