Thank you Robert, that was EXACTLY what I was looking for!!! That saves me from writing a proc() function to dissect all these simple integrals. Maple is SUCH a powerful tool and it must be a joy to know it so well.
Now I'm faced with another dilemma. The answer to this integral is a pretty complicated function of α, γ, β, and λ. I'd like to sub different numbers into these parameters to try and find a minimum (numerically instead of analytically).
My question is, how do I turn an answer like this into a function after it has been generated?
I know that as you generate an assignment [ie F:=(α+γ)3/(β+α2)8 ] you can make it a function [ie F:=(α, γ, β)->(α+γ)3/(β+α2)8 ]. But lets say F:=OVM(3,7,2) where OVM is a procedure [ie OVM:=proc(i,j,k) local f,g,h;] that generates some complicated functions of α, γ, and β. Now F is actually an assignment with α, γ, and β but if you were to write F:=(α, γ, β)->OVM(3,7,2) you would get "Error, invalid parameters for inline function". Is there any way to turn that assignment now into a function?
