Parameters under control Ö The total number of discrete points Ö The degree of the approximating polynomial to represent the discrete data. Ö The locations of the points at which the known function is discretized 11 Part 3a Direct fit polynomials 12 Direct fit polynomials The procedure can be used for both unequally and equally spaced data It is based on fitting the data by a direct fit polynomial and integrating that polynomial. b a b a n b a n x a x a x a dx x P dx x f I x a x a a x P x f + + + = = + + + = K K 3 2 ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 3 2 2 1 0 2 2 1 0 then
