Abstract: If the quadrature rule Q is applied to the function f, then the error can in many situations be bounded by $ {\rho _s}(Q){\left\Vert {{f^{(s)}}} \right\Vert _\infty }$, where $ {\rho _s}(Q)$ is independent of f. We obtain the asymptotics of these numbers for the Gaussian method $ Q_n^{\text{G}}\;(n = 1,2, \ldots )$ with very general weight functions and show that $ {\rho _s}(Q_n^{\text{G}})$ is (asymptotically) an upper bound for $ {\rho _s}(Q)$, if Q is any quadrature rule with the same degree as $ Q_n^{\text{G}}$.
