# integral should not be zero

```
F = sqrt((cos(x) - 1)^2 + sin(x)^2)
F.integrate(x, 0, 2*pi)
```

yields 0, the expected answer is 8.

integral should not be zero

```
F = sqrt((cos(x) - 1)^2 + sin(x)^2)
F.integrate(x, 0, 2*pi)
```

yields 0, the expected answer is 8.

Indeed.

```
sage: F.nintegrate(x,0,2*pi)
(8.0, 8.881784197001255e-14, 21, 0)
```

Maxima does this correctly internally.

```
(%i2) integrate( sqrt((cos(x) - 1)^2 + sin(x)^2), x, 0, 2*%pi);
(%o2) 8
```

But

```
(%i5) load(abs_integrate);
(%o5) /Users/.../sage/local/share/maxima/5.34.1/share/contr\
ib/integration/abs_integrate.mac
(%i6) integrate( sqrt((cos(x) - 1)^2 + sin(x)^2), x, 0, 2*%pi);
(%o6) 0
```

So this seems to be a bug in that package.

Multiplying matrices with different parents?

sage cannot get the simplest form on the limit expression with binomial and exponential operations

integrate results that are different from using maxima

could someone please try this integral? segmentation fault generated
