Hi all,
I am presently experiencing some problems with the use of integration in
Mathematica, and I do not understand what could be wrong.
I defined 2 functions as follow:
Tx1[i_] := ((1/a)*(1 - Abs[x - i*a]/a))*(UnitStep[x - (i - 1)*a] -
UnitStep[x - (i + 1)*a])
Ty1[j_] := (UnitStep[y - (j - 1)*b] - UnitStep[y - j*b])
where a, b are any assigned real values.
I then formed a matrix as follows:
JsxT := Table[Ty1[p]*Tx1[m], {m, L - 1}, {p, W}]
which is then followed by:
JsxSum = Sum[JsxT[[m,p]], {m, 1, 4}, {p, 1, 9}]
I then try to integrate JsxSum with respect to x and y in the following way:
Integrate[JsxSum, {x, 0, a}, {y, 0, b}]
When Mathematica (I'm using version 4) tries to work out this last
expression, it outputs the following message:
"Unique::usym : -0.43661971830985913 is not a symbol or a valid sumbol name"
before giving an output.
This problem occurs whatever values I may use for a and b.
Does someone know why?
Thanks for any help rendered.
