RE: Integrate with multiple integrals -- bug?


This appears to be fixed in Mathematica 5.2

Hello,

I am wondering where my or Mathematica's error in reasoning lies:

In[1]:= Integrate[g[z], {x, 0, a}]
Out[1]= a*g[z]

ok, because the function g does not depend on x.

In[2]:= Integrate[g[z], {z, 0, c}]
Out[2]= Integrate[g[z], {z, 0, c}]

ok, function g is not specified at the moment.

In[3]:= Integrate[g[z], {z, 0, c}, {x, 0, a}]
Out[3]= Integrate[a*g[z], {z, 0, c}]

also ok.  Now with the integration order reversed:

In[4]:= Integrate[g[z], {x, 0, a}, {z, 0, c}]
Out[4]= a*g[z]

?? why this result ??
