comment Usage of Assuming for Integration
Ok after googling "mathematica generic results", it now makes sense. As a beginner, I was not aware of this behavior. Thanks again.

comment Usage of Assuming for Integration
Thanks for explaining how the assumptions are working! I have one more question though. 0 is clearly an integer and Sin[k*Pi]/k for k=0 gives "Indeterminate". How can Mathematica then Simplify Sin[k*Pi]/k for k being integer to 0? I would expect a conditional expression (Indeterminate for k=0, and 0 else), or at least some kind of warning.

Now I am even more confused. So apparently it makes a difference how one specifies assumptions, which should not happen? But then again, I am still convinced that the output to my original line of code is just plain wrong. That is what I cannot get into my head.

comment Reproducing the Integral Definition of the Modified Bessel function
Hi Stephen. I was not aware of this, thanks. I also tried Simplify and FullSimplify on the Integral but with no result. But the equating shows that Mathematica knows the result, so maybe the integral is just considered to be "simpler" than the Bessel function?
