Bugs item #3585415, was opened at 20121108 07:45 Message generated for change (Tracker Item Submitted) made by tomasriker You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=3585415&group_id=4933 Please note that this message will contain a full copy of the comment thread, including the initial issue submission, for this request, not just the latest update. Category: Lisp Core  Integration Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: David Scherfgen (tomasriker) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: integrate loops forever with simple expression Initial Comment: if you calculate this: integrate(x^(1/3)/(x^(2/3)+1), x, 0, 8); Maxima will compute forever and never return. However, the indefinite integral works: integrate(x^(1/3)/(x^(2/3)+1), x); gives you the antiderivative: F(x) := (3*(x^(2/3)+1))/2(3*log(x^(2/3)+1))/2; Now the original definite integral can be computed as F(8)  F(0). This is OK, because F(x) doesn't change sign or shows any other notable behavior between 0 and 8. The question is: why doesn't Maxima do this? Instead it loops forever ...

Maxima appears to be stuck computing the limits. Don't know why that should be.  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=3585415&group_id=4933
