We consider the representation of error functionals in numerical quadrature by the Peano kernel method. It is easily observed that the usual expressions for Peano kernels of order s still make sense if s is not a natural number. In this paper, we discuss how to interpret these Peano kernels, we state their main properties, and we compare them to the (classical) Peano kernels of integer order.
