I've tried Valentin's Gaussian integration for the HP-11C for various values of N:

10: 1.291303564
20: 1.291290482
50: 1.291286729
100: 1.291286183
200: 1.291286042
500: 1.291286006
1000: 1.291285997

He doesn't seem to be fond of Simpson's rule:
Quote:Simpson's method is to numerical integration what bubble sort is to sorting, i.e., vastly inefficient.
