Similarly, Kibble (1945) stated in view of his series “... ” Harris and Soms (1980) reexamined above series and showed that in general both the tetrachoric and the Kibble series can diverge. They proved that both series converge absolutely if |ρij | < 1/(k − 1). 2) will diverge for ai = 0, i = 1, . . , k, k even, whenever |ρij | > 1/(k − 1). Only a few methods have been published after 1980 using asymptotic expansions. Moran (1983) derived a new expansion using the elements of R−1 . The author partially identified regions of convergence and divergence, which are somewhat different from those for the tetrachoric series.

0) (f )+. ,0) (f ) + . . ,0) (f ) + . . ,0) (f ), 2 for k > 2, with S2 (f ) = B2 (f ) when k = 1, and S2 (f ) = B(2,0) (f ) + B(1,1) (f ) + B(0,2) (f ) − B(1,0) (f ) − B(0,1) (f ) when k = 2. For efficiency, the one-dimensional rules usually have N0 = 1 and B0 (f ) = f (1/2) (the mid-point rule). Popular choices for these one-dimensional rule families are Gauss, Patterson, or Chebyshev point rules (Genz, 1986; Gerstner and Griebel, 1998; Bungartz and Dirnstorfer, 2003). ,d) (f ) with the same polynomial degree.

15) 0 Formulas similar to this based on other sphere surface parameterizations and other formulas for the MVT case are given by Somerville (1997, 1998). 2 Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods As a consequence of the central limit theorem, crude MC integration yields a probabilistic error bound in O(σN −1/2 ), where σ = σ(f ) is the square root of the variance of the integrand f . Thus, halving the integration error requires quadrupling the number of sample points. One reason for this relatively low accuracy is that the sample points are independent.
