Let us consider 

maximize(int(exp(-x^4), x = k .. 3*k), location);

Error, (in maximize) invalid input: iscont expects its 1st argument, f, to be of type algebraic, but received x = k .. 3*k
whereas the expected output is 

[(2*((1/40)*GAMMA(1/4, (1/80)*ln(3))*5^(1/4)*ln(3)^(3/4)-(1/40)*GAMMA(1/4, (81/80)*ln(3))*5^(1/4)*ln(3)^(3/4)))*5^(3/4)*(1/ln(3))^(3/4), [k = (1/10)*10^(3/4)*ln(3)^(1/4)]]

as Mma 11 produces. The following 

RealDomain:-solve(diff(int(exp(-x^4), x = k .. 3*k), k));
  -(1/10)*5^(3/4)*ln(3)^(1/4), (1/10)*5^(3/4)*ln(3)^(1/4)

is not a workaround because of 

int(exp(-x^4), x = (1/10)*5^(3/4)*ln(3)^(1/4) .. (3/10)*5^(3/4)*ln(3)^(1/4));


Please Wait...
