## remark aside...

Besides Wikipedia (may differ on selected language) there are proofs and overviews at https://www.math.cmu.edu/~bwsulliv/basel-problem.pdf or https://arxiv.org/abs/2010.03953 (Apostol's double integral is quite puzzling)

## workaround (2)...

Essentially you reduced it to Int( sin(alpha)*alpha^(r), alpha).

One step more would use Int( exp(a)*a^(r), a) and Maple solves it in terms of the Gamma function which seems more simple.

## Maple behaves correct...

If you input integers then Maple should process on that input. Otherwise just use floats.

## no need for Ätsch...

@Christopher2222 for sites with persistent troubles you may use https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ungoogled-chromium

there are portable versions as well

## Works for me too...

Works for me too (Firefox and blocking advertising). Disabling "infinite scroll" however gives the first page only. Hm, a matter of taste I suppose

## manually...

I marked it with the mouse and changed it through the menu bar (without further testing)

## digits?...

Are you sure about RefineRoot? The help gives me the impression that it is for finding approximative roots.

Edit: I see, it brackets a root

## I see...

## ok...

@vv Thanks - that solves it

## trapped by numerics...

I was trapped by numerics it seems

[seq(10.0^(20*n), n=2 .. 14)]:
[seq(expr, x in %)]:
evalf[1000](%): evalf[3](%);
[        64          104          144         183         223
[-3.22 10  , -1.79 10   , -2.18 10   , 9.38 10   , 3.02 10   ,

263         303         343         383         423
-1.08 10   , 3.41 10   , 1.07 10   , 2.35 10   , 3.16 10   ,

462          503          543]
-3.26 10   , -1.96 10   , -3.39 10   ]

## remark aside...

It's not a bug, just the rationalized form of yours. And you will need to sum up to ~ 10^11 I think

## do you mean 'dismantle' ?...

p:=c*(a+b); dismantle(p);

or

ToInert(p); FromInert(%);

## trackers...

@mcouture Adblockers and Anti-Tracking are natural for educated web users expecting privacy. And there is a lot of snooping on https://www.maplesoft.com/Applications/ However the site can be used if anti tracking is configured with care (and time for that).

## 2017.3...

@Kitonum acer's approach works in 2017.3

`x^x=1/sqrt(2); map(ln, %); solve(%);`

## double integral...

Why do you think the double integral equals Pi?

And: how do you want Dirac( g(x) ) to be understood?
