### Can't compute definite integral

Consider a scalar field (in polar co-ordinates), $f(r) = l-r$. Now I want to evaluate the field integral over a circular region of radius $b$, centered at a distance of $x$ from the origin. According ...

### Calculating a limit with a result that is discontinuous in the parameters

The following limit is left unevaluated (Edit: added the assumption that $\epsilon$ is real thanks to the comment below): ...

### How to deal with complicated Gaussian integrals in Mathematica?

As we know, for most Gaussian integrals, we can get the analytical result. Now I have many Gaussian integrals to treat, which have the following general form, ...

### How to substitute numeric values in a symbolic Jacobian matrix?

I have a multi-variate function from $\mathbb{R}^n\to\mathbb{R}^n$. Choosing any desired initial vector, we can produce the corresponding function value, which is a vector as follows. The main problem ...

### How does Mathematica integrate?

Basically, this question can be considered to be an extenstion to my other question. What I wanted to do was this integral as homework (it is indefinite BTW so no approximations using Simpson's Rule ...

### Quickly differentiate and evaluate a function of several variables

How can I differentiate a function with respect to several variables, and evaluate it at the same time? I want to specify also the variable index that I want to differentiate, and the number of times ...

### Integration with vector coefficients

I asked this same question in Mathematics, and it was suggested I might try here. I'm more comfortable with Maple, but if I can get Mathematica to do what I'm after, so much the better. Basically I'...

### Integrating with multiple indicator functions

I am trying to calculate an integral involving multiple indicator functions, such as: $$h(u,v,w) = -\int_0^1 J^{\prime\prime}(s) (I_{(0,s]}(u) - s)(I_{(0,s]}(v) - s)(I_{(0,s]}(w) - s)\, dF^{-1}(s)$$...

### Using implicit differentiation to find a line that is tangent to a curve at a point

A few days ago I asked about using differentiation to find a line that is tangent to a curve at a given point. J.M. provided a very elegant way to solve these kinds of problems in Mathematica. Now I'...

### Implementing discrete and continuous Hilbert transforms

What is an efficient and accurate Mathematica implementation of the Hilbert transform, for both continuous and especially discretely sampled functions? This transform relates phase and amplitude in ...
