This happen only in rather special cases, usually involving triginometric functions. If you prefer you can make Mathematica factor out the common terms, e.g. : In[14]:= Integrate[Factor[y], t] Out[14]= 2 g 3 g Sin[g] (2 t Cos[-] Sec[g] Sin[-] - 2 2 g g 3 2 Cos[-] Sec[g] Sin[-] Sin[2 t]) Tan[g] 2 2 You can't however in general stop Mathematica transforming the remaining terms (even those that do not depend on the variable of integration) since it is often the case that one can reduce an integral to a form that can be integrated only by performing such transformations. > From: Joel Storch <jstorch at earthlink.net> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net > Organization: EarthLink Network, Inc. > Date: Mon, 3 Jan 2000 03:12:24 -0500 (EST) > To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net > Subject: [mg21407] [mg21391] Simplification During Integration > > In performing a definite or indefinite integral, Mathematica performs > transformations on parameters which are not dependent upon the variable > of integration.
