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.

You must use NIntegrate

s = y /. 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}]

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.
