Hi again, the thing is that I need a function as a result of the integration, no a number. I can make a very long table of the results of NIntegrate, then try to fit the elements of Table, etc. I just needed to know if it was possible to obtain a function directly from the indefinite integral. In the documentation there is an example of an indefinte integral of an InterpolatinFuntion. Thanks to all who responded.

NDSolve[{y'[x] == y[x] Cos[x + y[x]], y[0] == 1}, y, {x, 0, 30}][[1]]; NIntegrate[1/s[x]^2, {x, 0, 30}] 10325.5 Bob Hanlon ---- Sergio Miguel Terrazas Porras <sterraza at uacj.mx> wrote: ========================== Hello group, I use NDSolve for a nonlinear differential equation, and I get an InterpolatingFunction, as expected. I can plot it, evaluate it, etc. The problem I have is that now I need to integrate 1/(the square of the InterpolatingFunction), and I get nothing but the input back. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
