Hi guys, I'm using a composite trapezoidal rule to approximate the integral of functions. Up till now I have been using a uniform composite mesh, ie, there are J intervals, each interval being 1/J wide (since the integral is between 0 and 1).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How do I find the most efficient non-uniform mesh that will reduce the error while keeping the number of intervals J the same? eg ((0:J)/J)^x

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have looked through all my lecture notes, and done some pretty thorough online searching but to no avail.

Thanks
