This is curious. To calculate , you generate the two points and uniformly and independently, then connect them with a line. Since and , you get the equation for the line (tangent to the sine if the two points coincide). You then integrate the difference squared between the line and the sine with respect to (times the probability density which is ) to get for this data set, and double-integrate that with respect to and (times the probability density which is for each variable) to get the expected .

Is this what you have done to come up with a numerical answer equal to ?

Hint: It is much easier to Monte-Carlo.
