Definite integrals are determined by subdividing the interval at detected singularities, then for each interval, computing the difference of the limit of an antiderivative at the upper and lower integration limits.
It is reasonable to expect that a CAS "simplify" algorithm will often be unable to express an antiderivative using only real elementary functions when such exist, resulting from the complexity of the parameters involved in general hypergeometric functions.
Here, F is called an antiderivative of a function f defined on T if [F.
When the antiderivatives involved exceed typical mental expectations, a more sophisticated method is needed, however.
In place of derivatives and antiderivatives, we shall extended this to all formally selfadjoint constant-coeffcient differential-difference operators.
They did not have our modern concept of function, were uneasy with limits, and they certainly did not know about antiderivatives or fundamental theorems.
