**Abstract:** Given an *L ^{1}* function

*f*on an infinite measure space the problem of generating an infinite sequence of random variables and statistics of these r.v. to consistently estimate the integral of

*f*and obtaining an approximate confidence interval will be addressed in this talk. This is joint work with Vivek Roy of Iowa State Stat Dept.
