Dear Rers,
It seems the usual sum function can work. Anyway, I appreciate your time on this.

Dear Rers,
I am trying to do a 2 dimmensional intergration for a function. the function is summation of another function evaluated at a series of vector values. I have difficulty to code this function.

For example: I have function f which is a bivariate normal density function:

#define some constants

err<-0.5
m<-5
times<-seq(0, m-1)
rou<-sum(times)/sqrt(m*sum(times^2))
sig.w<- sqrt(m*err)
sig.wt<-sqrt(sum(times^2)*err)

#bivariate normal density

f<-function(x, y, u.x, u.y)
exp(-((x-u.x)^2/sig.w^2+(y-u.y)^2/sig.wt^2-2*rou*(x-u.x)*(y-u.y)/(sig.w*sig.wt))/(2*(1-rou^2)))/(2*pi*sig.w*sig.wt*sqrt(1-rou^2))

###

I would like to have a function g which is defined as
######

uw = 1:n
uwt = (n+1):2n

g = function(x, y) f(x,y, uw, uw)+f(x,y, uw, uwt)+
...+f(x,y, uw[n], uwt[n])
#######

if n is very large, I am not able to write all them down, How can I code the function g. Thank you for your consideration.

Best wishes,
Liqiu
