 * @brief Compute integral approximation of the function using [Riemann sum](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riemann_sum)
 * @details In mathematics, a Riemann sum is a certain kind of approximation of an integral by a finite sum. It is named after nineteenth-century German mathematician Bernhard Riemann.
 * One very common application is approximating the area of functions or lines on a graph and the length of curves and other approximations.
 * The sum is calculated by partitioning the region into shapes (rectangles, trapezoids, parabolas, or cubics) that form a region similar to the region being measured, then calculating the area for each of these shapes, and finally adding all of these small areas together.
 * This approach can be used to find a numerical approximation for a definite integral even if the fundamental theorem of calculus does not make it easy to find a closed-form solution.
 * Because the region filled by the small shapes is usually not the same shape as the region being measured, the Riemann sum will differ from the area being measured.
 * This error can be reduced by dividing up the region more finely, using smaller and smaller shapes. As the shapes get smaller and smaller, the sum approaches the Riemann integral.
