Thanks once again for your kind reply. The discretization method here is very simple, the step methods, I am not searching for the method, i just don't know how to approximate the integral. I have read about trapz and cumtrapz but my only problem now is the variable limits of integration. Using trapz or cumptrapz don't allow me to specify the variable limits; I am really confused.
