What does quadrature mean?

    In rigid body rotation, there is some question.
    First, problem give me Lagrangian.
    And, I have to compute Hamiltonian.
    Then, problem said that "Reduce the system to quadratures (i.e., write the solution in the form of a one dimentional integral whose integrand is an explicit function of the integration variable.) "

    What does quadrature mean?
