Description

Measure Ball contains a package (MeasureB.m) of functions which compute the volume of an n-ball and the corresponding area of the bounding (n-1)-sphere. The functions are based upon the n-ball being considered as a rotation of the (n-1)-ball about the xn-axis. Two Mathematica sessions are included. The first (MeasureB.1) tests the exported functions. The second (MeasureB.2) compares the output of the auxiliary function used in the exported functions to a formulation using the Gamma function.
