The file format is in groups of 5 expressions:
tnnn:= the input expression
rnnn:= the expected, published result
annn:= integration of tnnn (Axiom's result)
mnnn:= difference of annn and rnnn (should be constant, hopefully 0)
dnnn:= derivative of mnnn (to see if the difference is constant)

There are, as usual, a LOT of mathematical and symbolic issues
such as branch cuts and simplification. If I remember correctly,
Axiom and Mathematics share one set of cuts, Maple and Maxima
share a different set.

The schaums suite has attempts to overcome the simplification
issues by using various Axiom routines. Often a special routine
can discover that a result is actually correct but different by
a constant. It is also a useful way to discover errors in the
original published source.

I have not yet done this with the Rich test suite due to the
size of the problem and the lack of time.

I will look at the Charlwood test suite.

It has been a long-standing Axiom project goal to develop CATS,
a Computer Algebra Test Suite.

I'm open to suggestion about other sources.

I believe we need a system-independent source of algorithms
that will perform these integrations. I'd like to see NIST
or some other standard organization support such an effort.
It is not enough to just publish the equations with answers.
We need to have excellent "standard" algorithms.

It would also be useful to standardize on a system-independent
so we could all use the same input for equations and results.
It took a while to hand-write the several thousand equations.

We moved past tables of logarithms a few years ago.
It is time to move past tables of equations.
This is, after all, mathematics not art.
