Does the Simpson's rule of numerical integration ([tex]\frac{1}{3}h\left( {f_0 + 4f_1 + f_2 } \right)[/tex]) give exact values for all polynomials to a third degree i.e., linear functions, quadratic functions, and cubic functions?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there a better method for numerical integration approximation? One which a better, more accurate result?

Many thanks
