Here are a couple of ways to do this with an *indefinite* integral which might meet your needs: Total[MapThread[Integrate[#1, #2] &, {List @@ Ex, {x, y, z}}]] or Total[Integrate @@@ Transpose@{List @@ Ex, {x, y, z}}] If you wanted to have the same integration limits the syntax for the first example would become: Total[MapThread[Integrate[#1, {#2, a, b}] &, {List @@ Ex, {x, y, z}}]] But do note, these work when T1, T2 and T3 are undefined functions. If they were defined functions then Mathematica would have evaluated Ex to something unlikely to be as cleanly separated into discrete functions by simply using List@@ For example: ex = f[x] + g[y]; Total[MapThread[Integrate[#1, {#2, a, b}] &, {List @@ ex, {x, y}}]] works. But keeping ex defined as above and defining f, g as: f[x_] := 2 x + 4 g[y_] := 1/y + 3; causes Total[MapThread[Integrate[#1, {#2, a, b}] &, {List @@ ex, {x, y}}]] to fail with an error message since In[18]:= Length[List @@ ex] == Length[{x, y}] Out[18]= False
