Number of subintervals or list of x-values for subintervals
MuPAD® notebooks are not recommended. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.
MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

Nodes is a positive number of subintervals
for numeric approximation of integrals. The given interval for approximation
is divided into the given number of subintervals, all of the same
Nodes can be a list of x-values
for dividing the given interval. The interval is divided into subintervals
at the given x-values.
When a number is given for
Nodes, the number
can be given as a list with this one number, too.
When a list with x-values is given, the left and right border of the whole (approximation) interval can be omitted. In this case, the number of subintervals is the number of given x-values plus one.
Nodes outside the approximation interval are ignored. Duplicate values are ignored.
The nodes need not be ordered.
Nodes determines the number of rectangles
for Riemann sums:
f := plot::Function2d(x*(x+4)*(x-4)): plot(plot::Integral(f, Nodes = 25, IntMethod = RiemannLower), f)
Nodes decreases the error or
plot(plot::Integral(f, Nodes = 125, IntMethod = RiemannLower), f)
We request a specific division into subintervals:
f := plot::Function2d(sin(x), x = -2*PI..2*PI): plot( plot::Integral(f, Nodes = [i*PI/2 $ i = -4..4], IntMethod = Trapezoid), f)
The subintervals do not need to be of equal width:
f := plot::Function2d(sin(x), x = 0..PI): plot( plot::Integral(f, [PI/3, PI/2, 2*PI/3], IntMethod = Trapezoid), f)
