Judging from your question, perhaps you are using the wrong syntax Integrate[Sin[x]^3/x, {x, 0, Infinity}] Pi/4 Integrate[Sin[x]^3/x^3, {x, 0, Infinity}] (3*Pi)/8 Bob Hanlon On Sat, Feb 11, 2012 at 6:35 AM, peter livingston <peter.livingston at cox.net> wrote: > Folks! > > > > I have recently come to the pleasures of Mathematica from other popular but > very expensive programming methods that I, as a retiree, cannot afford. > > > > My specific question is this: why am I able to get Mathematica to do the > complete integral of sin(x)/x, but it refuses to do any of the other types: > specifically sin^3[x]/x or sin^3[x]/x^3 over the half interval from zero to > infinity.
