## 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
