Defines functions integrate2

Documented in integrate2

#' Evaluate integral
#'
#' This function will evaluate the integral in equation 
#' (4) on page 7 of the paper. See Details section.
#' 
#' @param limit.vec This is a vector of length 2. It consists of the lower and
#' upper limits in the integral. Checking is carried out to ensure that is of
#' length two, and that limit.vec[1] <= limit.vec[2].
#' @param theta.diff A vector of length p-1, where p is the number of populations
#' of treatments. Coordinate [i] in theta.diff corresponds to \eqn{\theta_i -
#' \theta_{i+1}}. See \code{\link{genDelMat}}.
#' @param sigma.2 The known variance of the error terms.
#' @param n The number of replications per population.

#' @details This function evaluates the integral, and works with the lower and
#' upper limits that it is given. If one desires to compute the coverage
#' probability for an interval defined by \eqn{X_{(1)} \pm c}, then the user should
#' look at the function \link{exactCoverageProb} in this package.
#'
#' @examples
#' del1 <- c(2, 4)
#' integrate2(c(-1.1,1.3), del1)
#'
#' @seealso
#' \link{exactCoverageProb}, \link{integrand}
#'
#' @return The function returns a scalar value that is the value of the integral
#' in equation (4) of page 7, defined by the lower and upper limits provided
#' here.
