Abstract:

Error estimates for Gaussian quadrature are given in terms of the number of quadrature points and smoothness properties of the function whose integral is being approximated. An intermediate step involves a weighted-L polynomial approximation problem which is treated in a more general context than that specifically required to estimate the Gaussian quadrature error.
