Simpson’s 3/8 Rule

By: MufanYang

What is Simpson’s 3/8 Rule

Simpson’s 3/8 is very similar to the Simpson’s Method that we already learned in class. The different is Simpson’s 3/8 method uses a third degree polynomial (cubic) to estimate the curve you are trying to find the integral of while Simpson’s Method (also calledSimpson’s 1/3 Method) uses a second degree polynomial (quadratic)

To get the estimate for an integral in this case, we will write out the 3rd degree polynomial using the general equation below and then integrate it.

How do we get the formula:

We begin by integrating the 3rd degree

Polynomialp(t)=c3t3+c2t2+c1t+c0.

Substitute , , , and values back into the equation.

h = (𝑏−𝑎)/N , where Nis a positive multiple of 3 so another way to look at this is h = (𝑏−𝑎)/3𝑛 , where n is the number of partitions being used.

Here we are using a single partition.

1 Partition =

a

a + h

a + 2h

b=a+3h

Use2 partitions for this formula:

() + ()

= ()()

= ()(f(a)+3f(a+h)+3f(a+2h)+2f(a+3h)+3f(a+4h)+3f(a+5h)+f(b))

a+3h

a+5h

b = a+6h

a+4h

Conclusion:

So we can see that the equation for the Simpson’s 3/8 Rule is:

Each of the function values will be multiplied by 3 or 2 except for the first and the last. The number of subinterval points will need to be multiples of 3’s.

Example:

m = 1: h = 1:

m = 2: h =

=

m = 4: h =

= * 216 =20.25

Simpson’s 1/3 Rule VS Simpson’s 3/8 Rule

Advantages:

• Can use an odd or even number of subintervals rather than just an even number of subintervals as used in the Simpson’s 1/3 Rule.
• Can converge to estimated integral values much quicker than Simpson’s 1/3 Rule
• Has the same order of accuracy as the Simpson’s 1/3 Rule when calculating the absolute error, but the Simpson’s 3/8 Rule is actually slightly more accurate. But the fraction used in this error will be smaller and then will provide a more accurate error.

Disadvantages:

• This rule requires multiple of 3 segments only.
• When calculating the value by hand this rule is more complicated.
