Hi All, I saw this on sci.math and was wondering how an 'assume' type function can be done in Mathematica. Does one exist, or is there a way to emulate one? Here was the problem. After running the following code in maple: assume(n>0,n,integer); int(x^2*(sin(n*Pi*x/a))^2,x=0..a); Any thoughts? Thank you, Flip -- Posted via Mailgate.ORG Server - http://www.Mailgate.ORG
