I have absobloodylutely nothing against numerial integration. In actuality, I love numerical methods, of course, that does not mean I am an expert. I am just a junior engineer who loves maths and eventually find it interesting to play with calculus on rainy weekends.
Alright... my question is... how do I solve the inner integral numerically if the upper limit is not a number but an expression? I tried with the substitutions you proposed it pushed me to the drawing board, meaning it hit some point that neither mupad nor maple could go any further.
Thank you
