try using elliptic integrals.u can find the value to any desired degree of accuracy by expanding their integrands as power series.
I am having problems with the following integral:
(1/sqrt(2pi))*e^((-x^2)/2)dx, from x=0 to x=1. I know I can bring the
1/sqrt(2pi) outside the integral since it is just a constant, but I'm not sure how to integrate the e part of the expression. Any ideas or help would be great. Thanks.
Wow, I pretty much have no idea of what you are talking about. I've never taken elliptical integrals in any of the calculus classes I've taken. Is there a simpler method available, or can someone explain how to do this question using elliptic integrals?
Actually it's the Error function Erf(x) that's required here if an 'exact answer' is wanted.
Why do you want to find this integral? Where has it come from? What makes you think an exact answer is required?
