Hi,

I have a problem with an integral. Symbolic evaluation resulted in a "hypergeom" function. The problem is Mathcad 15 does not recognize its own function "hypergeom". Is this a bug? Does anyone now how to deal with this problem? I am interested in solutions for 'z' larger than -10 in this particular example (away from the singularity).

Best regards

Rafal

Re: Problem with hypergeom

HyperGeom is one of the symbolic only functions that MC15 supports, see the help (F1):

It does say that the 'float' keyword can be used to get a numeric result for the function.

The quick sheet gives a suggestion to verify the results that you get.

Regards

Andy

Re: Problem with hypergeom

Hi Andy,

Thank you for your detailed reply. You are correct, the calculation of the definite integral corresponds with the hypergeom evaluation within a given interval. The problem is, I would like to be able to recover the value of the integrated function in a point, so in case of my attached worksheet, I would like to evaluate F(10), F(11) and so on and be able to plot those results.

Re: Problem with hypergeom

Thank you Andy! This solution is really helpful. It is a pity though that Mathcad cannot plot this function automatically like log or sin function.

Best regards

Rafal
