"When NIntegrate tries to evaluate a numerical integral, it samples the integrand at a sequence of points. If it finds that the integrand changes rapidly in a particular region, then it recursively takes more sample points in that region. The parameters MinRecursion and MaxRecursion specify the minimum and maximum number of recursions to use. Increasing the value of MinRecursion guarantees that NIntegrate will use a larger number of sample points. MaxPoints and MaxRecursion limit the number of sample points which NIntegrate will ever try to use. Increasing MinRecursion or MaxRecursion will make NIntegrate work more slowly."
