Re: Integrate with multiple integrals -- bug?


Hi, Martin,

    Mathematica 5.2 (on Linux), and 5.1 (on Windows) give the expected
result (that is, the output of your In[4] gives the same as your Out[3]
). Perhaps this is a bug which is fixed in newer versions?

          Best,
                   Curtis O.
