Hi,

Here an example of integral that Maple 17 cannot calculate (mean of standard Gumbel distribution)

> G:=int(x*exp(-x)*exp(-exp(-x)), x = -infinity .. infinity);

The result is known as the Euler-Mascheroni constant as shown by a numerical computation:

 > evalf(G);

0.5772156649

>  identify(%, extension = [gamma]);

gamma

> evalf(gamma)

0.5772156649

Also, it cannot compute the variance
