Abstract: In this paper a method is presented for evaluating

$\displaystyle \int_0^N {f(x){e^{iwx}}} dx{\text{ where }}\omega N = p \cdot 2\pi ,{\text{ }}p{\text{ integer}}{\text{.}}$

The idea is to approximate $ f(x)$ instead of the whole integrand by aid of polynomials. The Romberg-Stiefel algorithm has been extended to this case. The new method is complementary to the usual Romberg-Stiefel algorithm in the sense that it is more advantageous for larger values of $ \omega $. An expression for the remainder term is also included. Results for the real part are exact if $ f(x)$ is of at most 7th degree and for the imaginary part if $ f(x)$ is of at most 8th degree.
