Numeric algorithm tuning: configuration and customization of how numeric (partial) integrals are executed

# Adjust global 1D integration precision
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Print current global default configuration for numeric integration
# strategies
# Example: Change global precision for 1D integrals from 1e-7 to 1e-6
# The relative epsilon (change as fraction of current best integral estimate) and
# absolute epsilon (absolute change w.r.t last best integral estimate) can be specified
# separately. For most p.d.f integrals the relative change criterium is the most important,
# however for certain non-p.d.f functions that integrate out to zero a separate absolute
# change criterium is necessary to declare convergence of the integral
# NB: ROOT.This change is for illustration only. In general the precision should be at least 1e-7
# for normalization integrals for MINUIT to succeed.
