i'm measuring a waveform (pulse) that i want to integrate the area under.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i take a bunch of samples and use one of the basic numeric integration methods (Trapezoidal, Simpson's, Boole's)

what is a fairly easy method to estimate the uncertainty/error of the numeric integration compared to the "true" value?

thanks
