Could someone help me understand why Maple's int hangs when using int on an integrand if evala is not first applied to the integrand?
When I mean hangs, I mean really hangs. I have timelimit and maple server.exe runs at high CPU for hrs. When adding evala(), it completes instantly and returns unevaluated integral (which is just fine as I did not expect this to be evaluated) but it does not hang which is the main point.
Is this considered normal behaviour or a bug? Should then one always add evala() on the integrand before using int? As I get many hangs on int (even when using timelimit). I am not familiar with evala command as I have never had to use it before, but by chance I tried it and noticed this.
V 2023 on windows 10. Worksheet attached.
The second case above just hangs. Make sure to save all your work. I found I have to terminate all of Maple sometimes as killing server.exe seems to make the frontend hangs and not respond, ending up losing work in other worksheets which I did not save.
