Picture of Purple ball Teaching: Creating interactive teaching and learning material with Maple, MathView, Scientific WorkPlace (or Scientific Notebook), Java and etc. I am visiting Singapore for one year, click here for the project(s) that I am doing in Singapore. (June 97-May 98)

  1. Scientific WorkPlace Modules
  2. Famous Curves.

Picture of Purple ball Research: Incorporate uneven partions and develop open and closed types of adaptive quadratures in one and two dimensions, (click here for example). The quadratures can be used in estimating (non absolute) integrals such as f(x)=(1/x)*sin(1/x) or f(x,y)=(1/xy)*sin(1/xy) directly without using transformation technique. Note that the functions mentioned above are Henstock integrable but not Lebesgue integrable.

  • Integrals that Maple and Mathematica can't handle or give wrong answers.
  • Example 1 Maple and Mathematica can't handle this function since the singular points are located along x = y.
  • Example 2 Both Maple and Mathematica give answers 0, which are wrong. Since the double integral integral does not exist even if the repeated integrals is 0. This example shows that the existence of a double integral is essential for one to estimate its value since the existence and equality of the repeated integrals of a function (such as in this case) need not imply that the double integral of the function exists.
  • Surveys on numerical integration
  • More examples and my quadrature and cubature
