Description (last modified by )
See this ask.sagemath question. Original report is
sage: F = sqrt((cos(x) - 1)^2 + sin(x)^2) sage: F.integrate(x, 0, 2*pi) 0
but the answer should be 8.

I suppose, this ticket needs a stopgap?
comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by
Maybe all the abs_integrate
ones do - see #12731. But I don't think it's appropriate to just raise a warning EVERY TIME someone integrates. So there would have to be some way to limit its applicability. I think that is why I never worked on stopgaps; the stuff I was working on doesn't lend itself to easily pointing that out, other than having Sage itself start with a disclaimer "warning: computer math sometimes has errors".

+1
which in additional links to Mathematically Wrong Answers: http://trac.sagemath.org/query?status=new&status=needs_work&status=needs_review&status=needs_info&type=defect&stopgaps=!&max=0&order=id
I would support that (to warn the greenhorns), or will that have too much opposition?
but I don't think it's appropriate to just raise a warning EVERY TIME someone integrates.
Agree, so what about showing a stopgap warning only once per user+computer+sageVersion or similar? ( otherwise the user has explicitly request regular stopgap warnings)

These are questions above my pay grade, as I did not institute the stopgap system. Again, if there is a way to invoke this when abs_integrate
is used, that would be fine - we already have a way to only selectively load packages, but once loaded, I'm not sure we can "unload" it. But continue that discussion at #12731.
