I the field o numerical analysis, numerical integration (quadrature) is a method tae obtain approximations o integrals[1]. It is usit at the area o numerical methods for ordinary differential equations an numerical methods for pairtial differential equations.

Various formulas have been studiit for many years an become famous. For example, thare is the Gaussian quadrature[2] (namit after Gauss), the Newton-Cotes formula[3] (namit after Isaac Newton), and the Euler-Maclaurin formula[4] (namit after Leonhard Euler).
