Here is an example of the sort of thing you can do.
First of all read in the Calculus`Integration` package which gives you the
Boole function for doing integrals over regions defined by inequalities:
<< Calculus`Integration`
Now integrate the function x^2*y^2 (as an example) over the region of
interest (as an example fJ = 3, fH = 2, f1 = 1/2, f2 = -4^(-1)}):
With[{fJ = 3, fH = 2, f1 = 1/2, f2 = -4^(-1)},
Integrate[Boole[x^2 + y^2 < fJ^2 &&
(x - f1)^2 + y^2 < fH^2 && (x - f2)^2 + y^2 <
fH^2]*x^2*y^2, {x, -Infinity, Infinity},
{y, -Infinity, Infinity}]]
which gives the result:
-((56359*Sqrt[247])/163840) + (11/3)*ArcCos[3/16] +
(35/6)*ArcSin[Sqrt[13/2]/4]
