General Algorithms for Integration
Posted:
Jun 17, 1996 2:05 PM


I recently saw in a book describing the workings of a symbolic math software system reference to a general integralfinding algorithm in which any integral which yields a result built out of elementary functions could be found, and a proof of the nonintegrability in terms of elementary functions found in all other cases. Where can I find reference to such an algorithm?
