A generalized discrepancy and quadrature error bound. (English) Zbl 0889.41025
Summary: An error bound for multidimensional quadrature is derived that includes the Koksma-Hlawka inequality as a special case. This error bound takes the form of a product of two terms. One term, which depends only on the integrand, is defined as a generalized variation. The other term, which depends only on the quadrature rule, is defined as a generalized discrepancy. The generalized discrepancy is a figure of merit for quadrature rules and includes as special cases the \({\mathcal L}^p\)-star discrepancy and \(P_\alpha\) that arises in the study of lattice rules.
