### Is there an example where the error of Gauss-Laguerre quadrature does not vanish?

The $n$th Gauss-Laguerre quadrature aims to approximate integral $$\int_{\mathbb{R}_+} f(x) \exp(-x)$$ by the sum
$$\sum_{i=1}^n f(x_i) w_i$$
where $x_1,...,x_n$ are the roots of the $n$th Laguerre ...

### Does there exist a function such that $\int_{\mathbb{R}_+^{\star} } t^nf(t)dt=0$? [closed]

Let $f\in C([a,b],\mathbb{R})$ such that $\displaystyle\int_{a}^{b} t^nf(t)dt=0$ for all integer n.
We know that $f\equiv 0$. It's call Hausdorff theorem.
This theorem is wrong on $\mathbb{R^+}$, a ...

### Estimating a quantity from an estimate in its integral

I am reading a paper in which the following argument is made. We have two positive real valued functions $f(x)$ and $g(x)$. We know that $$\int_0^x \int_0^y f(z) \ dz \ dy \leq g(x).$$
It is then ...
