Category: Lisp Core  Integration Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Submitted By: Mark Peloquin (incripshin) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: bad integral evaluation Initial Comment: The following integral should evaluate to infinity: integrate(x/sqrt(1+x^4), x, 1, inf); This should be obvious since it's essentially integrating 1/x up to infinity, which diverges. Do the work if you like ... it diverges. Maxima evaluates this to: log((2*sqrt(2)+3)/(24*sqrt(2)+34))/4 However, maxima can tell that this diverges: limit(integrate(x/sqrt(1+x^4), x), x, inf)  Comment By: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Date: 20061022 07:53 Message: Logged In: NO In version 5.10.0 maxima gives the correct answer: (%i28) integrate(x/sqrt(1+x^4), x, 1, inf); Integral is divergent  an error. Quitting. To debug this try debugmode(true);  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20061021 12:41 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=28849 What version? 5.10.0 says the integrate(x/sqrt(1+x^4),x,1,inf) is divergent.
