Hi, your expression staying under the integral contains the term ~1/r: wcc[r_] := (r - r^2) + n (r - r^3); dwcc[r_] := ((D[wcc[r], {r, 2}])^2 + (1/r D[wcc[r], r])^2 + (2*v)/r* D[wcc[r], r]*D[wcc[r], {r, 2}]) r // Simplify Collect[dwcc[r] // Expand, r] -4 - 4 n + (1 + 2 n + n^2)/r - 4 v - 4 n v + r^2 (36 n + 36 n v) + r (8 - 6 n - 6 n^2 + 8 v - 12 n v - 12 n^2 v) + r^3 (45 n^2 + 36 n^2 v) It is the term (1 + 2 n + n^2)/r and it will of course give rise to a logarithmic divergence on the lower integral limit (i.e. at r=0). Introducing instead the lower limit as epsilon, 0<epsilon<1 one finds Integrate[dwcc[r], {r, \[Epsilon], 1}, Assumptions -> {\[Epsilon] \[Element] Reals && \[Epsilon] > 0 && \[Epsilon] < 1}] -(1/4) (-1 + \[Epsilon]) (16 (1 + v) \[Epsilon] + 3 n^2 (1 + \[Epsilon]) (11 + 15 \[Epsilon]^2 + 4 v (1 + 3 \[Epsilon]^2)) + 4 n (5 + 9 \[Epsilon] + 12 \[Epsilon]^2 + 2 v (1 + 3 \[Epsilon] + 6 \[Epsilon]^2))) - (1 + n)^2 Log[\[Epsilon]] where the last term exhibits such a divergence. So, everything is right. Have fun, Alexei Hello all, I tried to evaluate the integral below, integrandnumcc = Integrate[(D[wcc, {r, 2}]^2 + (1/r D[wcc, r])^2 + 2 v 1/r D[wcc, r]*D[wcc, {r, 2}]) r, {r, 0, 1}] where wcc = (r - r^2) + n (r - r^3); What I am getting is: Integrate::idiv: Integral of -4-4 n+1/r+(2 n)/r+n^2/r+8 r-6 n r-6 n^2 r +36 n r^2+45 n^2 r^3+<<7>> does not converge on {0,10}. >> Can anybody help find what is wrong?
