Re: Definite Integration in Mathematica 2

And here is one case that evaluating first the indefinite integral and
then
apply the Newton-Leibniz formula is preferable than trust Definite
Integration
capabillities of Mathematica

Integrate[(2 - Sin[x])^(1/4), {x, 1, 4}]
N[%]
Integrate[(2 - Sin[x])^(1/4), x]
Simplify[Limit[%, x -> 4, Direction -> 1] - Limit[%, x -> 1, Direction
-> -1]]
Chop[N[%]]
NIntegrate[(2 - Sin[x])^(1/4), {x, 1, Pi/2, 4}]

-((1/
(5*Sqrt[3]*Gamma[7/4]))*(2*I*(5*Sqrt[Pi]*Gamma[5/4]*Hypergeometric2F1[5/4,
1/2, 7/4, 1/3] -
     2*Gamma[7/4]*(AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[1]), 2
- Sin[1]]*(2 - Sin[1])^(5/4) +
       AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[4]), 2 - Sin[4]]*(2
- Sin[4])^(5/4)))))
3=2E3356211372370748 - 2.324008709185599*I
(-(4/5))*AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[x]), 2 -
Sin[x]]*Sec[x]*Sqrt[1 + (1/3)*(-2 + Sin[x])]*(2 - Sin[x])^(5/4)*
  Sqrt[-1 + Sin[x]]
(4*I*(AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[1]), 2 - Sin[1]]*(2
- Sin[1])^(5/4) +
    AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[4]), 2 - Sin[4]]*(2 -
Sin[4])^(5/4)))/(5*Sqrt[3])
3=2E3356211372370748
3=2E3356211372353624

Interestingly

Drop[Expand[Integrate[(2 - Sin[x])^(1/4), {x, 1, 4}]], 1]
Chop[N[%]]

(8*I*AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[1]), 2 - Sin[1]]*(2 -
Sin[1])^(1/4))/(5*Sqrt[3]) -
  (4*I*AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[1]), 2 - Sin[1]]*(2
- Sin[1])^(1/4)*Sin[1])/(5*Sqrt[3]) +
  (8*I*AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[4]), 2 - Sin[4]]*(2
- Sin[4])^(1/4))/(5*Sqrt[3]) -
  (4*I*AppellF1[5/4, 1/2, 1/2, 9/4, (1/3)*(2 - Sin[4]), 2 - Sin[4]]*(2
- Sin[4])^(1/4)*Sin[4])/(5*Sqrt[3])
3=2E3356211372370743

(i.e. ommiting the whole Hypergeometric term)
