Description (last modified by )
From google spreadsheet which no one reads X(
sage: integrate(x^2/exp(1/(x^2+1))/(x^2+1),(x,infinity,infinity)).n() 3.3357920860949157
Wolfram alpha gives the correct answer.
The problem comes from here:
sage: D=1.00000000000000*x^2*e^(1/(x^2 + 1.00000000000000))/(x^2 + 1.00000000000 ....: 000) sage: numerical_integral(D,oo,+oo) (3.3357920860949157, 4.262178610048295e09)
and in one specific algorithm
sage: numerical_integral(D,oo,+oo, algorithm="qag") (3.3357920860949157, 4.262178610048295e09) sage: numerical_integral(D,oo,+oo, algorithm="qng") (nan, nan) sage: numerical_integral(D,oo,+oo, algorithm="qags") (nan, nan)
and this case is handled by
gsl_integration_qagi
And the problem can be cut into two parts:
sage: numerical_integral(D,0,+oo) (1.6678960430474579, 2.1310893050241475e09) sage: numerical_integral(D,oo,0) (1.6678960430474579, 2.1310893050241475e09)

 Status changed from new to needs_review
here is a proposal : check that the limit is zero before doing the numerical integral
New commits:
0661926  add some safety check for numerical integrals up to infinity

This is not a symbolic Maxima problem, as the integral is just returned, so it's something about how we evaluate
n
on these unevaluated integrals.
