```Dear mathematica gurus,
I have seen several times in this news group someone needs to do
simplification
with integers. The following might help you to do it.

Unprotect[IntegerQ];
IntegerQ[m_+n_]/;IntegerQ[m]&&IntegerQ[n]=True;
IntegerQ[m_*n_]/;IntegerQ[m]&&IntegerQ[n]=True;
IntegerQ[m_^n_]/;IntegerQ[m]&&IntegerQ[n]&&NonNegative[n]=True;

Unprotect[Sin,Cos];
Sin[m_*Pi]/;IntegerQ[m]=0;
Cos[m_*Pi]/;IntegerQ[m]=1;
Sin[m_*Pi+x_]/;IntegerQ[m]=Sin[x];
Cos[m_*Pi+x_]/;IntegerQ[m]=Cos[x];
...

Ofcourse, you could add more simplification rules for your other
functions as well. I think this will work in many situations. How ever,
I dont know if there is a solution for the following situation:
IntegerQ[m]=True;
IntegerQ[n*n]=True;
Should IntegerQ[m*(n-1)*(n+1)*(n^2+1)] be True? Does anyone have some
idea on this?

Regards,
Tri.
