the interfaces `maxima`

, `sympy`

, `giac`

, `fricas`

, are not able to symbolically evaluate the integral (*), whose exact value is $\pi^2/4$. however, it is possible that you use `algorithm='mathematica_free'`

, which gives the good indefinite integral, and then use `subs`

to get the definite integral (although notice that in v.7.6. this option is broken as you can see in the sagecell, but it has been fixed in the latest development version!).

to compute the integral numerically and with arbitrary precision (**), let's try mpmath:

```
sage: from mpmath import mp
sage: mp.dps = 200
sage: print(mp.quad(lambda t: t*mp.sin(t)/(1+mp.cos(t)^2), [0, mp.pi]))
```

compare to:

```
sage: N(pi^2/4, digits=200)
```

(*) in Sage v.8.0.beta8

(**) for arbitrary precision numerical integration using "Sage functions", i've found this hint: #8321 which leads me to thinking that it is a feature which has not been implemented, although i'm not 100% sure..
