Problem with evaluating Integral

  • To: mathgroup at yoda.physics.unc.edu
  • Subject: Problem with evaluating Integral

Can anyone tell me why Mathematica v2.0 (for windows or Mac) does not
make any progress with the following:

f[x_]:= Sin[x]+Exp[x]
j[x_]:=Evaluate[Normal[Series[f[x],{x,a,4}]]]
err[a_]:=Integrate[(f[x] - j[x])^2,{x,-6,2}]
Evaluate[err[a]]

We have tried this and similar attempts with v1.2 and with 387 Mma
and it either gives no result after several hours or runs out of
memory or says that there is an error at line 1776 of the Integrate
procedure.
Thanks
