In this paper we study the numerical integration on ( − 1,1) with respect to the Jacobi weight function (1 − x) α (1 + x) β , where α and β are complex parameters. The problem arises in some applications of computational models in quantum mechanics. We discuss two methods for integration. One is suitable for integration of analytic functions and the other is applicable to the general Riemann integrable functions.
