"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."
