Quadrature (1D » VI) (G Dataflow)

Version:
Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Performs 1D numerical integration using the adaptive Lobatto quadrature approach. You define the integrand using a strictly typed VI reference.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

data

Variant to pass arbitrary values to the VI that integrand refers to.

datatype_icon

integrand

Strictly typed reference to the VI that implements the expression to integrate.

datatype_icon

upper limit

Upper limit of the integral.

Default: 1

datatype_icon

lower limit

Lower limit of the integral.

Default: 0

datatype_icon

tolerance

Accuracy of the quadrature. A smaller tolerance leads to a more accurate result but requires more computation time.

How Does Tolerance Affect the Accuracy of the Quadrature?

This node compares the difference between the 4-points and 7-points Lobatto quadratures on the interval and uses tolerance to terminate the calculation iteration. If the difference is less than tolerance, this node stops the calculation iteration and moves on to the next interval.

Default: 1E-05

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

result

Integral result.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Algorithm for Evaluating the Integral

This node evaluates the following integral:

x 0 x 1 f ( x ) d x

where

  • x1 is upper limit
  • x0 is lower limit

To obtain high accuracy, this node divides an interval into subintervals when the integrand f(x) varies sharply, as shown in the following figure.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
