Fwd: Thx for your help

I hope to help you.

1) In Mathematica, Abs[x] is left unevaluated if x is NOT a numeric 
quantity; so Integrate[Abs[x],x] returns the original input.

2) I began to study Mathematica with a very good book. Its last edition is 
entitled: "The Beginner's Guide to Mathematica Version 4", Jerry Glynn & 
Theodore Gray, by Cambridge University Press.
A new book is also good: "The Student's Introduction to Mathematica", Bruce 
F. Torrence & Eve A. Torrence, by Cambridge University Press.
However, you can visit the Mathematica Bookstore on the web at
