Re: integral; changed to quad example

 From: Henry F. Mollet Subject: Re: integral; changed to quad example Date: Sat, 20 Aug 2005 10:05:35 -0700 User-agent: Microsoft-Entourage/11.1.0.040913

I was a little hasty with my question. Due to bad memory I did not remember
the reason for the *new* warning "ABNORMAL RETURN FROM DQAGP"

"Although quad returns a non-zero value for ier, the result is reasonably
accurate (to see why, examine what happens to the result if you move the
lower bound to 0.1, then 0.01, then 0.001, etc."

To actually see what happens near 0 in a plot, I had to use x = linspace
(1,3, 1000), x = linspace (1,3,100) did not show the high-frequency
oscillations near x= 0.
