Thanks, that would definitely help. Three questions: the first output is the estimated value, and the second one is the uncertainty, correct? And secondly, do you have any idea why the symbolic integration fails? I'm asking because ISlice is still a few steps and integrations removed from the final answer that I seek, and keeping things symbolic until the final answer is calculated would probably result in better accuracy. Finally, if you don't really know why Sage is acting up, how would I integrate ISlice over a definite domain? Would Sage know how to take the resultant value automatically, or is there some extra step involved?

2017-11-01 13:22:01 +0100 asked a question Definite Integral Fails due to Runtime Error

Here is the code that I have been writing; it's meant to predict the moment of inertia of a perfect cylinder tilted and offset from its axis of rotation, among other things. However, the definite_integral command fails with an error thrown by the gcd function. I suspect the issue is due to Sage's inner workings; however, I do not have the time or know-how to fully debug this issue. Any help would be appreciated.
