Gauss Quadrature Gauss quadrature implements a strategy of positioning any two points on a curve to define a straight line that would balance the positive and negative errors. Hence the area evaluated under this straight line provides an improved estimate of the integral. Gauss quadrature the points for evaluation in an optimal spaced.
