152Gotta prob... Manual integration with small deltas
- Dec 9, 2003Hi Dr. Ha and everyone!
Anybody found a way to do manual integration with good results here?
I have this program (ick.cmp) that won't calculate the areas of a
rectangular or a triangular area when the deltas are medium small. Not
infinitessimal at all.
If you run the test with the global variable named "test" set to 1 it
will miscalculate like crazy. When you set "test" to 2 it uses enormous
deltas but comes up with much more accurate values. I tried messing
with tol#=1e-6 and it's still pretty bad.
I'm also tossing in a graph program (SoL.cmp for "speed of light") to
show the sharp knee in the mass/velocity curve near the speed of light
just for fun.
It really is practically a brick wall.
I'm using CMAP to generate graphics as I explore physics and math a bit.
