- MaxRecursion->n specifies that up to n levels of recursion should be done.
- Recursive subdivision is done only in those places where more samples seem to be needed in order to achieve results with a certain level of quality.
- In d dimensions, each recursive subdivision increases the number of samples taken by a factor that increases roughly exponentially with d.
- MaxRecursion->Infinity specifies no limit on the number of recursive subdivisions.
- In cases such as functions with discontinuities or with infinitely rapid oscillations there may be no convergence even after an infinite number of subdivisions.
