Numerical Integration of Two-Dimensional Complex-Valued Functions for the needs of BIEM
Keywords:Numerical Integration, Two-Dimensional Complex-Valued Functions, GSL C wrapper
AbstractNumerical integration is a key problem with numerous applications,
including the boundary integral equation method (BIEM). GSL 
provides powerful implementations of a broad variety of well-known numerical
methods and algorithms. However, its routines have certain limitations:
the numerical integration based on QUADPACK library  is implemented
only in the case of one-dimensional functions.
In this paper we present an extension of the GSL numerical integration
routines for the special case of two-dimensional complex-valued functions.
The presented approach is part of our effort to build a BIEM software system
for solving a 3D elastodynamics problem for wave propagation in a
continuously inhomogeneous half-space.
