### Error Estimates for Certain Cubature Formulae

#### Abstract

We estimate the errors of selected cubature formulae constructed by the product of Gauss quadrature rules. The cases of multiple and (hyper-)surface integrals over $n$-dimensional cube, simplex, sphere and ball are considered. The error estimates are obtained as the absolute value of the difference between cubature formula constructed by the product of Gauss quadrature rules and cubature formula constructed by the product of corresponding Gauss-Kronrod or corresponding generalized averaged Gaussian quadrature rules. Generalized averaged Gaussian quadrature rule $\widehat{G}_{2l+1}$ is $(2l+1)$-point quadrature formula. It has $2l+1$ nodes and the nodes of the corresponding Gauss rule $G_l$ with $l$ nodes form a subset, similar to the situation for the $(2l+1)$-point Gauss-Kronrod rule $H_{2l+1}$ associated with $G_l$. The advantages of $\widehat{G}_{2l+1}$ are that it exists also when $H_{2l+1}$ does not, and that the numerical construction of $\widehat{G}_{2l+1}$, based on recently proposed effective numerical procedure, is simpler than the construction of $H_{2l+1}$.
