I have a function that is parametrized by a direction and returns a signal strength,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]F(\theta, \phi) \rightarrow R[/tex]

It's a very smooth function and I have been using Monte Carlo to do the integration. I just pick a random direction, sample, and average later. It's worked but since its smooth I figured I could use a quadrature style integration to see if it converges faster.

I just don't know how to set up my integrand to do that because all texts I've read on it usually talk about quadrature in euclidean coordinates.

Thank you,
