### What numerical quadrature to choose to integrate a function with singularities?

For example, I would like to numerically compute the $L^2$-norm of $\displaystyle u = \frac{1}{(x^2+y^2+z^2)^{1/3}}$ in some domain that includes zero, I tried Gauss quadrature and it fails, it is ...

### Numerical evaluation of an elliptic integral in python

Goal: I need to evaluate numerically an integral of the following form: $$\int_0^\infty \frac{dx}{(a^2+x)\sqrt{(a^2+x)(b^2+x)(c^2+x)}}$$ where $a,b,c \in \mathbb{R}$ are in the interval $(1,1000)$....

### Solving the quadratic in the Fast Marching Method

The Fast Marching Method is a way of solving the Eikonal Equation on a discrete grid, essentially just computing a wavefront speading out from initial points, IE: The idea is that we want to compute ...
