Hello! Please, answer the beginner's question. I need to get the numeric value of an integral, so I defined all the needed functions, set the limits of intergration and started the evaluation. All my previous experience with Mathematica 3.0(4.0) said that it works reasonable time. But now... Several hours have passed on Celeron-550 64 mb RAM, and the notebook is still "Running". Kernel is alive and constantly changes it's allocated memory size. How can one guess whether this evaluation will take a day or several years? How can one force it to run faster (maybe, lowering the accuracy)? If that matters, the *.nb file is available as: ftp://www.warlock.mi.ru/pub/yar/term9.nb Best regards, Yar.
