Results are presented for an investigation of popular numerical integration methods applied to the reflector antenna problem. The comparison of methods is facilitated by the introduction of a new figure-of-merit (the p-factor), which is a measure of how far out in pattern-space the results are accurate. The p-factor can also be used to determine how dense a sampling grid is required for a given pattern accuracy. Results of the comparison show that Gauss-Zirnike polynomial integration on the diameter and the trapezoidal rule on the circumference was the most accurate method tested. Somewhat less accurate but still good methods were the Gauss-Legendre/trapezoidal and Gauss-Legendre/Gauss-Legendre methods.<>
