Fast and Accurate Computation of Gauss-Legendre and Gauss-Jacobi Quadrature Nodes and Weights
- An efficient algorithm for the accurate computation of Gauss–Legendre and Gauss–Jacobi quadrature nodes and weights is presented. The algorithm is based on Newton’s root-finding method with initial guesses and function evaluations computed via asymptotic formulae. The n-point quadrature rule is computed in O(n) operations to an accuracy of essentially double precision for any n ≥ 100.
