Bug introduced in 9.0 and fixed in 10.1


I am trying to run the following integral in version 9.0, but it fails:

Integrate[
 2 I (-1 + 
  x) ((-8 + 12 x - 6 mπ^2 x - 2 mπ^2 x^2 - 
   4 x^3)/((1 - x)^2 + 
   mπ^2 x) + ((4 - 2 x + 4 mπ^2 x - 8 x^2 + 
   6 mπ^2 x^2 + 6 x^3) Log[
    1/((1 - x)^2 + mπ^2 x)])/((1 - x)^2 + mπ^2 x)), {x, 0, 
  1}, Assumptions -> mπ > 0 && mπ < .1]

Version 9.0.1: Version 9.0

But in version 8.0, it works:

Is this a bug, or is the integral really non-convergent? What's a possible workaround, since I don't have easy v8 access?

  • $\begingroup$ BTW shouldn't there a space between m and pi, or is this intentional? $\endgroup$ Mar 8, 2013 at 22:59
  • $\begingroup$ $m\pi$ represents a single symbol. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Thanks god 2πR can't be used as a symbol name $\endgroup$ Mar 8, 2013 at 23:21
