Weights and abscissae of Gauss-Tschebyscheff quadrature

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.




numeric::gtdata(n) returns the weights and the abscissae of the Gauss-Tschebyscheff quadrature rule with n nodes.

The Gauss-Tschebyscheff quadrature rule produces the exact integral for all integrands of the form with polynomials p(x) through degree 2 n - 1.

The exact weights b = [b1, …, bn] and abscissae c = [c1, …, cn] are given by


Environment Interactions

numeric::gtdata is not sensitive to the environment variable DIGITS.

The function uses option remember.


Example 1

The following call produces exact data for the quadrature rule with two nodes:




The number of nodes: a positive integer

Return Values

List [b,c] is returned. The lists b = [b1, …, bn] and c = [c1, …, cn] are the exact weights and abscissae of the Gauss-Tschebyscheff quadrature rule, respectively.


The numerical integrator numeric::quadrature calls numeric::gtdata to provide the data for Gauss-Tschebyscheff quadrature.
