Riemann Integral Reiteration

Module by: Leif Anderson. E-mail the author

Summary: The notes contained herein outline the delta-x of the Riemann sum equation transformation into a function used to find the area spectrum of a data set. The transformation uses an eigenfunction by expanding the data set arrays into eigenvecotrs.

Delta-x Transformation through an Eigenfunction

The formatting for the expressions in this module are currently being revised.

Transformation from a Riemann sum equation to the function for area spectrum (A) is the eigenvalue:

λ=n21-1 λ n 2 1 -1

The area spectrum can be stretched through array duplication across multipule dimensions forming a matrix. The matrices complimenting the eigenvalue have an equal number of values. For this instance of λ λ , a matrix formulation is necessary for the Riemann ∆x and (A) arrays by duplicating the vertical elements so that the horizontal size of each matrix equals the number of inputs of the original array:

The eigenvalue representing a squared value of the n number of observations is congruent to the input in either matrix. Thereby, the eigenfunction for the vectors and data set independent variable is possible.

When ErrorBoxTextDataλ ErrorBox TextData λ is applied to the Riemann ∆x, find the matrix transformation by the function of x.

SetAx(n21-1)((b1a)n-1) Set Ax n 2 1 -1 b -1 a n -1
SetAn(b1a)x-1 Set A n b -1 a x -1

The area spectrum is calculated from a data set using the same variables as the Riemann sum equation and solved for A with f(x):

x =1nn(b1a)x-1 x 1 n n b -1 a x -1

The resulting equation (5) represents all possible areas of a data set calculated by the Riemann sum equation.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
