Title Integration on Computer Algebra Systems

In this article, we consider ten indefinite integrals and the ability of three computer algebra systems (CAS) to evaluate them in closed-form, appealing only to the class of real, elementary functions. Although these systems have been widely available for many years and have undergone major enhancements in new versions, it is interesting to note that there are still indefinite integrals that escape the capacity of these systems to provide antiderivatives. When this occurs, we consider what a user may do to find a solution with the aid of a CAS.
