Approximate integration using iterated Levin transformations
The efficiency of a quadrature scheme based on iterated Levin U transformations and composite rule approximations for a harmonic sequence of mesh ratios is demonstrated for typical problem classes. Numerical results indicate a favourable comparison with the well known nonlinear extrapolation procedures applied to a sequence of composite quadrature rule sums for a geometric progression of the mesh ratios.
