# Calculating Integral

f(x) = e**(-x) * log(x+1);

uu = integral(f, (x, 0, oo));

uu.n(digits=18)

why this dont work?

As far as I can tell, this seems to be a bug. `uu`

evaluates to the expression `e*expintegral_e(1, 1)`

and the `expintegral_e`

function doesn't seem to be defined. There is a `exponential_integral_1`

function which seems to give the correct answer:

```
sage: N(e*exponential_integral_1(1), digits=18)
0.596347362323194107
```

This agrees with WolframAlpha.

Yup, @benjaminfjones is right on track.

We seem to be missing quite a few of the functions at The Maxima special function listing. Fixing this is Ticket #11143.

Integration and differentiation symbols

Sample question: How do I compute symbolic integrals like $\int{sin(x) tan(x)} dx$

How do I understand the result of symbolic integrals

why is symbolic comparison so slow?

Numerical integration in a function

How does sage deal with choosing branches? Examples?
