    //! Integral of a one-dimensional function
    /*! Given a number \f$ N \f$ of intervals, the integral of
        a function \f$ f \f$ between \f$ a \f$ and \f$ b \f$ is
        calculated by means of the trapezoid formula
        \int_{a}^{b} f \mathrm{d}x =
        \frac{1}{2} f(x_{0}) + f(x_{1}) + f(x_{2}) + \dots
        + f(x_{N-1}) + \frac{1}{2} f(x_{N})
        where \f$ x_0 = a \f$, \f$ x_N = b \f$, and
        \f$ x_i = a+i \Delta x \f$ with
        \f$ \Delta x = (b-a)/N \f$.

        \test the correctness of the result is tested by checking it
              against known good values.
