Re: Problems integrating InterpolatingFunction


You wrote Y as its own integral, which causes $RecursionLimit errors.

You probably meant something like

Clear[x, y]
x[t_] = x[t] /.
    NDSolve[{x''[t] == -x[t]^3 + x[t], x'[0] == 0, x[0] == 1.42},
     x[t], {t, 0, 100}] // First
y[t_] = Derivative[-1][y][t]
