```The integral

Integrate[Sin[z]*Sin[z^3 + z], {z, 0, Infinity}]

(as I was informed)

gives a incorrectly divergent message.
The integral however is convergent.

The following is part of my response to another forum.
Demonstrate how vital is to help Mathematica sometimes.

In:=
\$Version

Out=
"5.2 for Microsoft Windows (June 20, 2005)"

In:=
int=Integrate[Sin[z]*Sin[z^3 + z], {z, 0, Infinity}](*the integral
stays unevaluated*)

Out=
Integrate[Sin[z]*Sin[z + z^3], {z, 0, Infinity}]

In:=
int2 = (int /. Integrate[f_, x_] :> Integrate[#1, {z, 0, Infinity}]
& ) /@ Expand[Sin[z]*TrigExpand[Sin[z^3 + z]]]

Out=
(1/72)*(2*Sqrt*Pi*(BesselI[1/3, (4*Sqrt[2/3])/3] - BesselJ[1/3,
(4*Sqrt[2/3])/3]) +
3*Gamma[1/3]*(2*Sqrt - Sqrt*BesselI[-(1/3), (4*Sqrt[2/3])/
3]*Gamma[2/3] - Sqrt*BesselJ[-(1/3), (4*Sqrt[2/3])/3]*Gamma[2/3]))
+ Integrate[Cos[z]*Sin[z]*Sin[z^3], {z, 0, Infinity}]

In:=
int3 = (1/2)*Integrate[Sin[2*z]*Sin[z^3], {z, 0, Infinity}]

Out=
(Pi*(AiryAi[-(2/3^(1/3))] - AiryAi[2/3^(1/3)]))/(4*3^(1/3))

In:=
FullSimplify[int2 /. Integrate[x___] :> int3]

Out=
(-2*3^(1/6)*Pi*AiryAi[2/3^(1/3)] + Gamma[1/3])/(4*Sqrt)

In:=
N[%, 40]

Out=
0.295741225849781931593673891336119670357883693300484102195`40.

PS
I spent almost two hours to figure out a workaround.

"It is not easy to get Goods"

Enjoy Mathematics and Mathematica!
