Definite and Indefinite Integrals

SAGE can compute both definite integrals like \int_0^1 \frac{dx}{x^3+1} and indefinite integrals such as \int \frac{dx}{x^3+1}:

sage: print integrate(1/(x^3+1),x)
                                         2 x - 1
                       2            atan(-------)
                  log(x  - x + 1)        sqrt(3)    log(x + 1)
                - --------------- + ------------- + ----------
                         6             sqrt(3)          3
sage: integrate(1/(x^3+1), x, 0, 1)
(6*log(2) + sqrt(3)*pi)/18 + sqrt(3)*pi/18

Approximating Integrals

Regarding numerical approximation of \int_a^bf(x) dx , where f is a piecewise defined function, Sage can

  • compute (for plotting purposes) the piecewise linear function defined by the trapezoid rule for numerical integration based on a subdivision into N subintervals
  • the approximation given by the trapezoid rule,
  • compute (for plotting purposes) the piecewise constant function defined by the Riemann sums (left-hand, right-hand, or midpoint) in numerical integration based on a subdivision into N subintervals,
  • the approximation given by the Riemann sum approximation.

sage: f1 = x^2      
sage: f2 = 5-x^2
sage: f = Piecewise([[(0,1),f1],[(1,2),f2]])
sage: f.trapezoid(4)
Piecewise defined function with 4 parts, [[(0, 1/2), x/2], [(1/2, 1), 9*(x - 1/2)/2 + 1/4], [(1, 3/2), (x - 1)/2 + 5/2], [(3/2, 2), 11/4 - 7*(x - 3/2)/2]]
