Description (last modified by mforets)

Maxima interface returns a wrong result of this definite integral:

sage: integrate(exp(arccos(x)),x,0,1, algorithm='maxima')                         
-1/2*e^(-1/2*pi) + 1/2

while it should be:

sage: integrate(exp(arccos(x)),x,0,1, algorithm='sympy')
1/2*e^(1/2*pi) + 1/2

This was reported in ask.sage: an integral with arccos wrong

This is a Maxima problem because

(%i10) integrate(exp(acos(x)),x,0,1);
                                       - %pi/2
                                 1   %e
(%o10)                           - - ---------
                                 2       2

Ok, thank you!

i've sent an upstream report
