Problem with a convolution algorithm

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi.

I've been reading "Statistical Mechanics Algorithms and Computations". And I came to a problem while processing Algorithm 1.26 (I attach a link at the end). I don't get why the weights are the way they are, specially I can't understand the sequence {1/2l,1/l,...,1/l,1/2l}.

Does anyone knows why the weights are those and how would be the sequence?

Thanks in advance

The weights are just those used by the trapezoidal method of numerical integration. It has nothing to do with the underlying problem.

Well it certainly isn't a great book when it comes to explain things.

Thank you very much
