You ask if your advice helps.  Well, you could check it yourself,
don't you have Mathematika?

The notation makes no difference, I can just write the full expression
inside "Integrate", as I did below:


    \(Integrate[\(\(2  \[Pi]\ b\)\/a\) \((\(\(3 
                     e\^2\)\/\(\[Lambda] \((\[Lambda]\^2 - 
                        e\^2)\) \(\@\(\(a\^2\) \[Lambda]\^2 - 
                          l1\^2\)\) \@\(\(a\^2\) \[Lambda]\^2 -
l2\^2\)\)\) \
\((x\/\[Lambda]\^2 + \(\[ImaginaryI]  y\)\/\(\[Lambda]\^2 - e\^2\))\)
- \
\(\((x\/\[Lambda]\^2 + \(\[ImaginaryI]  y\)\/\(\[Lambda]\^2 -
e\^2\))\)\^3\) \
\((\(a\^2\) \(\[Lambda]\^3\) \((\[Lambda]\^2 -
e\^2)\))\)\/\((\(\@\(\(a\^2\) \
\[Lambda]\^2 - l1\^2\)\) \@\(\(a\^2\) \[Lambda]\^2 - l2\^2\))\)\^3)\),
\[Lambda], \[Xi], \[CapitalXi]}]\)], "Input"],

Wolfram proudly declares that his Mathematika can handle any integral
computable in terms of elementary functions.  Well, here is one, which
it can not handle, and I am pretty sure, this is not the only one.
