The language seems to be Georgian. Nkoreli is typing Georgian in the Latin alphabet. Jan23 accepted How to make recursive computation of $I_n=\int_0^1 \frac{x^n}{x+\alpha}\,dx$ stable? Jan23 comment How to make recursive computation of $I_n=\int_0^1 \frac{x^n}{x+\alpha}\,dx$ stable? Thanks! That really helped. Jan23 comment How to make recursive computation of $I_n=\int_0^1 \frac{x^n}{x+\alpha}\,dx$ stable? Umm, we know already what $I_0$ is. We want a formula for $I_n$. I know, for large $n$, $I_0$ is easily calculated, but we are given $I_0$ and asked to find a stable algo for $I_n$. With the recurrence I derived this would involve subtracting something very close to $I_0$ from $I_0$, a classic invite for massive instability. Jan23 comment How to make recursive computation of $I_n=\int_0^1 \frac{x^n}{x+\alpha}\,dx$ stable? I seem to get $I_0=f(1)-\frac{1}{\alpha}f(2)+\frac{1}{\alpha ^2}f(3)...\frac{1}{\alpha ^ n}I_n$. Is this remotely correct? How on earth is this of any use, especially since I don't know if $n$ is even or odd? This also doesn't look very stable, with the alternating up and down of small quantities...
