# Lecture 2: Complexity results for integration.

ASC - Approximation, sampling and compression in data science

We give a short introduction to IBC and present some basic definitions and a few results. The general question is: How many function values (or values of other functionals) of $f$ do we need to compute $S(f)$
up to an error $\epsilon$? Here $S(f)$ could be the integral or the maximum of $f$.
In particular we study the question: Which problems are tractable? When do we have the curse of dimension?  In this second talk we discuss complexity results for numerical integration. In particular we present results for the star discrepancy, the curse of dimension for $C^k$ functions, and results for randomized algorithms

This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series.
