Riemann Sum Publisher's description
from H. Lohninger
In mathematics, a Riemann sum is a method for approximating the values of integrals.
In mathematics, a Riemann sum is a method for approximating the values of integrals. It may also be used to define the integration operation. The sums are named after Bernhard Riemann. There are four different kinds of Riemann sums, called left, right, middle and trapzeoidal sum. Any Riemman sum on a given partition is contained between the lower and the upper Riemman sums. A function is defined to be Riemann integrable if the lower and upper Riemman sums get ever closer as the partition gets finer and finer. This fact can also be used for numerical integration. More on Riemann sums can be found in the free eBook Elementary Calculus by H.J. Keisler.
The program RiemannSum allows to calculate the Riemann Sums for various functions. The user may adjust the width of the slices to see the convergence of the Riemann sum towards the actual area under a curve. In addition, the relationship between the width of the slices and the estimation error is displayed.
