The interpolant
will tell you more ’bout “f” than

My thesis, in Computer Science at the ETH Zurich, Switzerland, deals with the adaptive numerical computation of integrals (Adaptive Quadrature). The main result concerns explicitly constructing the underlying interpolation polynomial for a quadrature rule and using it to produce both better error estimates and re-use information after sub-dividing an interval.
