This is fixed now and needs a doctest:
From #sagedevel:
Boulemans left the chat room. (Read error: Connection reset by peer) [11:58am] Boule joined the chat room. [11:58am] Boule: (laptop shutdown due to power supply) [11:59am] Boule: e, T, w = var("e T w"); assume(1 = e^2)>0; integrate(cos(w+T)/(1+e*cos(T))^2,T,0,2*pi) should give 2*pi e cos w/(1e^2)^3/2 instead of 0 [11:59am] Boule: can someone help? [12:00pm] wjp: yeah, sage seems to have some trouble with this integral. You could try http://groups.google.com/group/sagesupport since the right people don't seem to be here currently [12:00pm] Boule: ok, thanx [12:08pm] kcrisman: By the way, I just tried this and get a hang in Maxima. Can you type the exact commands which lead to an answer of 0? [12:08pm] kcrisman: If I plug something (.5, .75) in for e in Maxima in Sage, I do get zero as an output. [12:12pm] Boule: don't know maxima, but with numerical values for e and w at wolframalfa, it gives something different than 0 [12:13pm] wjp: *nod* maple gives nonzeros too [12:13pm] kcrisman: Can you give the *exact* sequence of commands which yield zero in Sage itself? [12:14pm] Boule: e = var('e') [12:14pm] Boule: T = var('T') [12:14pm] Boule: w = var('w') [12:14pm] baali1 joined the chat room. [12:14pm] baali left the chat room. (Quit: Leaving.) [12:15pm] Boule: assume(1e^2>0) [12:15pm] Boule: integrate(cos(w+T)/(1+e*cos(T))^2,T,0,2*pi) [12:15pm] kcrisman: Okay, that's what I thought. [12:16pm] kcrisman: Okay, it takes a while but I do get 0.

#8729 may point to a solution.

Hmm, I forgot about this, and it's true it never got implemented, did it?

It was fixed about two weeks ago in maxima. There was a new release of maxima a few days agoI'm trying to make an spkg right now.

Sweet. I haven't been keeping up on the Maxima list lately, thanks.

Replying to jason:
I wonder if this is another manifestation of this bug:
sage: integrate(sqrt(sin(x)^2+cos(x)^2), x,0,2*pi) pi
I just checked; this ticket isn't the same bug.

The upgrade to maxima 5.21.1 does not fix this. After #8731:
sage: e, T, w = var("e T w") sage: assume(1e^2>0) sage: integrate(cos(w+T)/(1+e*cos(T))^2,T,0,2*pi) 0

Maxima 5.23.2 still has this, and we still haven't reported it.
Maxima 5.23.2 http://maxima.sourceforge.net using Lisp SBCL 1.0.24 Distributed under the GNU Public License. See the file COPYING. Dedicated to the memory of William Schelter. The function bug_report() provides bug reporting information. (%i1) assume(1e^2>0); 2 (%o1) [e < 1] (%i3) integrate(cos(w+T)/(1+e*cos(T))^2,T,0,2*%pi); (%o3) 0
This is now Maxima bug 3211975.

 Report Upstream changed from Not yet reported upstream; Will do shortly. to Fixed upstream, but not in a stable release.
According to the bug report, this is now fixed. However, some examples may still throw a Lisp error, so we should check out whether that will affect us before saying we're totally fixed when we upgrade.

In Maxima 5.33.0 (see #13973):
(%i1) assume(e^2<1); 2 (%o1) [e < 1] (%i2) integrate(cos(w+T)/(1+e*cos(T))^2, T, 0, 2*%pi); 2 Is abs(e)  sqrt(1  e )  1 positive, negative or zero? negative; ! 2 ! Is !sqrt(1  e )  1!  abs(e) positive, negative or zero? negative; 2 2 %pi e sqrt(1  e ) cos(w) (%o2)   4 2 e  2 e + 1
This appears to be the correct answer. Note that the answers to both questions are "negative" for all e with 1 < e < 1, so it would be nice if Maxima didn't ask those questions.

The thing noted in the message upstream when they closed their ticket
sage: integrate(cos(w+T)/(1+.5*cos(T))^2,T,0,2*pi) <boom>
does still happen, but I think that is a different issue tracked elsewhere here (the usual keepfloat thing).
So... do we have a reasonable test case to add here to confirm this is fixed and close it?

 Summary changed from Incorrect integral from Maxima to doctest fixed integral from Maxima
Here's the doctest:
sage: assume(1e^2>0) sage: assume(abs(e)sqrt(1e^2)1>0) sage: assume(abs(sqrt(1e^2)1)abs(e)>0) sage: integrate(cos(w+T)/(1+e*cos(T))^2,T,0,2*pi) 2*pi*sqrt(e^2 + 1)*e*cos(w)/(e^4  2*e^2 + 1)

Your assumptions are contradictory: the first assumption (1  e^2 > 0
) implies the negation of the other two assumptions (see also comment:15).
A fortiori, the other two assumptions (after negating) are actually redundant. It is annoying that we have to add them; ideally, we would only declare this integral to be "fixed" if Maxima did not need the extra two assumptions...

That would seem so. I think you are asking for a feature (redundancy of additional assumptions) in Maxima that would warrant a separate ticket. I apologize for not answering earlier.

Replying to rws:
I think you are asking for a feature (redundancy of additional assumptions) in Maxima that would warrant a separate ticket.
That too, but more importantly I meant the fact that the assumptions that are currently made in the doctest are mutually inconsistent:
assume(1c^2 > 0) assume(abs(c)  sqrt(1c^2)  1 > 0) assume(abs(sqrt(1c^2)1)  abs(c) > 0)
Namely, the first assumption is equivalent to 1 < c < 1
, and on this domain the functions abs(c)  sqrt(1c^2)  1
and abs(sqrt(1c^2)1)  abs(c)
are strictly negative.
There is already some functionality for detecting inconsistent assumptions (e.g. assume(x > 0); assume(x < 0)
raises an error), but it doesn't detect this case.
I wonder if this is another manifestation of this bug:
