This is exactly the kind of integration used in flight simulators where the
'numbers' are coming from external inputs (e.g. the pilot). Summation
would be equivalent to "rectangular integration". There are other models
which may work better. Though in the simulations we used to run, we
_needed_ a signature something like:

double integrate_step<method>(double next_delta_x, double next_delta_t);

Where often, delta_t would be a constant over the "run". Other times, it
