quad=gauss(f,a,b,A,W)
function quad=gauss(f,a,b,A,W)

%Input     - f is the integrand 
%             - a and b upper and lower limits of integration
%             - A is the 1 x N vector of abscissas from Table 7.9
%             - W is the 1 x N vector of weights from Table 7.9
%Output  - quad is the quadrature value

%If f is defined as an M-file function use the @ notation
% call quad=gauss(@f,a,b,A,W).
%If f is defined as an anonymous function use the
% call quad=gauss(f,a,b,A,W).
