Convergence of osculatory quadrature formulae

  • John D. Donaldson


The regions of analyticity of functions to be integrated using equally spaced osculatory quadrature formulae are obtained. As a by-product it is noted that the asymptotic forms used are applicable to estimating or placing bounds on errors.
