Cubature formulas are obtained which are optimal or asymptotically optimal on given sets of functions. These formulas consist of line integrals which may be evaluated by optimal or asymptotically optimal quadrature formulas. The advantage of these formulas over the optimal and asymptotically optimal cubature formulas with rectangular-lattices of knots is shown.
