Abstract: Let where , and let be the -point Gauss-Legendre quadrature approximation to . In this paper, we derive an asymptotic expansion as for the error when has general algebraic-logarithmic singularities at one or both endpoints. We assume that has asymptotic expansions of the forms
where and are some polynomials in . Here, and are, in general, complex and . An important special case is that in which and are constant polynomials; for this case, the asymptotic expansion of assumes the form
where , and and are constants independent of .
