## How to evaluate this integral that way....

Maple

I need tutoring on some calculus basics.

The right-hand side below is the desired evaluation.

Maple does integrate the indefinite integral but not a definite version of it.

I assume that this is not possible without additional assumptions on y(x).

I tried to assume the properties continuous and differentiable.

Anything else that can be done/assumed to force evaluation the way I want?

Here is an example of how such integrals can come about

## 2 times an error, on the third try not. ...

Maple 2023

I try to understand why Maple throws 2 times an error but on a third attempt (with the same input) output is returned. Is that a new mechanism of suppression of error or warning messages and returning output up to a point where evaluation cannot further be performed.

With -sin instead of cos Maple returns output immediately. Does this mean that there is no information to the user available (yet) for this particular case?

I have expected elementwise and map to be effective. Why aren't they for this example?

(Evaluation at a point (see help(D)): In output (3) it is the first time that I see a composition of the D operator with the Eval function (vertical bar). Is that an undocumented feature or part of an answer that I could not figure out myself?)

Maple

The example below is an attempt to solve a boundary value problem (BVP) without manually replacing terms in expressions and some questions where there might be room for improvement. (Only the first integration step is shown to keep it short)

My objective is to have clean Maple input with minimal manual interventions or low-level manipulations (such as using op and similar commands).

Since I know the result: Multiplying by  to make integration work.  Q1: Are there other ways to integrate a single step without a priori knowledge?

Q3: Are there ways to prevent commands evaluating to which might suggest incorrectly a new independent variable?

Maple

I am updating older files.

Executing with the attached code snippet from a worksheet created with Maple 16 outputs for an inert integral

Why is that and how can I fix my old worksheets to make them work with Maple 2023?

Maybe related: Execution with (or return) does not evaluate the document blocks. When all document blocks are expanded with "right click show command" the cursor does not advance to the next execution group. I can't remenber if this behaviour was allways like this or has changed.

A suggestion for Maplesoft: I have stopped using document blocks with hidden code since hiding and showing commands requires too much time (to many clicks and mouse movements). A simple double click on the marker of the document block could facilitate hiding and showing code allot.
