D01AKF is an adaptive integrator, especially suited to oscillating, nonsingular integrands, which calculates an approximation to the integral of a function
over a finite interval

D01AKF is based on the QUADPACK routine QAG (see Piessens et al. (1983)
). It is an adaptive routine, using the Gauss
-point and Kronrod
-point rules. A ‘global’ acceptance criterion (as defined by Malcolm and Simpson (1976)
) is used. The local error estimation is described in Piessens et al. (1983)
Because D01AKF is based on integration rules of high order, it is especially suitable for nonsingular oscillating integrands.
D01AKF requires you to supply a function to evaluate the integrand at a single point.
The routine D01AUF
uses an identical algorithm but requires you to supply a subroutine to evaluate the integrand at an array of points. Therefore D01AUF
will be more efficient if the evaluation can be performed in vector mode on a vector-processing machine.

For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value
is recommended. If the output of error messages is undesirable, then the value
is recommended. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with this parameter, the recommended value is
. When the value is used it is essential to test the value of IFAIL on exit.

Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
The maximum number of subdivisions allowed with the given workspace has been reached without the accuracy requirements being achieved. Look at the integrand in order to determine the integration difficulties. If necessary, another integrator, which is designed for handling the type of difficulty involved, must be used. Alternatively, consider relaxing the accuracy requirements specified by EPSABS
, or increasing the amount of workspace.
Round-off error prevents the requested tolerance from being achieved. Consider requesting less accuracy.
Extremely bad local integrand behaviour causes a very strong subdivision around one (or more) points of the interval. The same advice applies as in the case of .
D01AKF cannot guarantee, but in practice usually achieves, the following accuracy:

which, in normal circumstances, satisfies
The time taken by D01AKF depends on the integrand and the accuracy required.
