Estimate the integral of one-dimensional function using the trapezoidal rule.

1 | ```
integrateTrapezoid(x, y, type = c("A", "dA", "cA"), xmin, xmax)
``` |

`x, y` |
vectors of x and y values. In the normal case, these
vectors are both supplied, and of equal length. There are also two
special cases. First, if |

`type` |
Flag indicating the desired return value (see “Value”). |

`xmin, xmax` |
Optional numbers indicating the range of the integration.
These values may be used to restrict the range of integration, or to
extend it; in either case, |

If `type="A"`

(the default), a single value is returned,
containing the estimate of the integral of `y=y(x)`

. If
`type="dA"`

, a numeric vector of the same length as `x`

, of which
the first element is zer0, the second element is the integral between
`x[1]`

and `x[2]`

, etc. If `type="cA"`

, the result is the
cumulative sum (as in `cumsum`

) of the values that would be
returned for `type="dA"`

. See “Examples”.

There is no handling of `NA`

values.

cA <- integrateTrapezoid(x, y, "cA")
