It is probably possible ("evaluation tracing" is the keyword to look for) but most likely this is not what you want: Mathematica usually solves problems in a way that differs very much from the way that a human would solve them. With integrals, for example, Mathematica may start by differentiating a very long and complex expression and just try to match coefficients. Hence looking at the individual steps is not going to tell you much unless you want to debug/optimize Mathematica internals. Best, -Nikolaus -- =C2=BBIt is not worth an intelligent man's time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that.=C2=AB -J.H.
