Here is a minimal example,
u=integrate(x**3/(exp(x)-1),(x,0,oo))
The expression is quite messy, but the result is known. When I try to use any simplification routine, like
u.simplify()
sage displays the error message
RuntimeError: ECL says: Error executing code in Maxima: limit: direction must be either 'plus' or 'minus'; found: _SAGE_VAR_minus
As far I understood, the expression is defining lateral limits by symbolic variables, while maxima handle such limits as strings. If it is the case there is an internal conflict here. Is it the case?cav_rtWed, 20 Jan 2021 02:58:40 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/55370/
