Abstract: This paper presents two techniques for the comparison of Adams formulas and methods based on natural splines. A rigorous foundation to the claim that a pth order natural spline formula produces better results than a pth order Adams method, but not quite as good as a $ (p + 1)$st order Adams formula is given for $ p = 2,3,4$, which suggests the general case.
