Works for me. The result Mathematica generated is

Pi/( 3*sqrt(3) ).

I am using Mathematica 4.0 for Windows. I am wondering if you perhaps used
some special formating (formatting palette) that recast the integrand into a
different form that cannot be solved  analytically. Also, you can try
NIntegrate[1/(2(1-x^2)^(1/2)+(1-x^2)),{x,0,1}] since  you are evaluating
your integral between two numerical limits.

Sorry for my ignorance, but I have Mathematica for just 3 days, and I have
a trouble, I try to calculate the following expression:
Integrate[1/(2(1-x^2)^(1/2)+(1-x^2)),{x,0,1}], but Mathematica dont give me
an answer, the program return the original input, do u have any ideas. Thx
in advance.Regards
