Hello.
$VersionNumber
5.2
Consider the indefinite integral of the functions StruveH[n, x] and
StruveL[n, x]
strs = HoldForm[Integrate[{StruveH[n, x], StruveL[n, x]}, x]]
ReleaseHold@strs
{Integrate[StruveH[n, x], x], Integrate[StruveL[n, x], x]}
It seems that Mathematica can't get the antiderivative of these
functions.
However,
strs /. Integrate[f_, o_] :> Integrate[f, {o, 0, t}, Assumptions -> n
> -2]//
ReleaseHold//FunctionExpand
{(t^(2 + n)*HypergeometricPFQ[{1, 1 + n/2}, {3/2, 2 + n/2, 3/2 + n}, -
(t^2/4)])/(2^n*((2 + n)*Sqrt[Pi]*Gamma[3/2 + n])), (t^(2 +
n)*HypergeometricPFQ[{1, 1 + n/2}, {3/2, 2 + n/2, 3/2 + n}, t^2/4])/
(2^n*((2 + n)*Sqrt[Pi]*Gamma[3/2 + n]))}
which are indeed antiderivatives of the functions
FunctionExpand[D[ints, t]]
{StruveH[n, t], StruveL[n, t]}
Am I the only one that see an incosistency here or not?
How is it possible, since Mathematica failes to get the indefinite
integrals,
to evaluate the definite ones (of course I am aware of the table look-
up possibility
and the Marichev-Adamchik Mellin transform methods but I think here is
not the case).
Any insight/explanations?
Dimitris
