Physicists use the Fresnel integrals to compute for the intensity of light near a straight edge.
C(x) = int(cos((1/2)*Pi*t^2), t = 0 .. x)
S(x) = int(sin((1/2)*Pi*t^2), t = 0 .. x)
We perform numerical adaptive integration using Maple software.
We compare the results to the Maple Fresnel routines.
The error is only in the order of 10^-4.
Information on the partitioning can be found using the following Maple command
