Symmetric quadrature formulas over a unit disk

  • KyoungJoong Kim
  • ManSuk Song


An algorithm to get an optimal choice for the number of symmetric quadrature points is given to find symmetric quadrature formulas over a unit disk with a minimal number of points even when a high degree of polynomial precision is required. The symmetric quadrature formulas for numerical integration over a unit disk of complete polynomial functions up to degree 19 are presented.
