# TOMS655 Weights for Interpolatory Quadrature

TOMS655 is a C++ library which computes weights for interpolatory quadrature schemes, by Sylvan Elhay and Jaroslav Kautsky.

The typical use of this library is for the user to specify a quadrature interval, a weight function, and a sequence of abscissas (which may be repeated), and to request the corresponding weight vector so that an interpolatory quadrature rule is produced.

Note that when an abscissa is repeated, this indicates that, at this point, not only the function value but one or more derivatives are to be used in the quadrature formula.

The library is also suitable for the simpler task of computing both the abscissas and weights for a variety of classical Gaussian quadrature rules, including
NameIntervalWeight function
Legendre(a,b)1.0
Chebyshev Type 1(a,b)((b-x)*(x-a))^(-0.5)
Gegenbauer(a,b)((b-x)*(x-a))^alpha
Jacobi(a,b)(b-x)^alpha*(x-a)^beta
Laguerre and Generalized Laguerre(a,+oo)(x-a)^alpha*exp(-b*(x-a))
Hermite and Generalized Hermite(-oo,+oo)|x-a|^alpha*exp(-b*(x-a)^2)
Exponential(a,b)|x-(a+b)/2.0|^alpha
Rational(a,+oo)(x-a)^alpha*(x+b)^beta
