## Homework Statement

I'm doing research with a Professor and I'm constructing a likelihood function which has parameters the density parameters found in the Friedman equation found using Massive Gravity Action H

## Homework Equations

H(z)^2=a + b (1 + z) + c (1 + z)^2 + d (1 + z)^3 + r (1 + z)^4 ignoring units the integral I need to evaluate for the comoving distance is

Integrate[ 1/Sqrt[a + b (1 + z) + c (1 + z)^2 + d (1 + z)^3 + r (1 + z)^4], {z, 0, Z}]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I put this into Mathematica and it can't do it. If I expand it out as a Taylor series I can do it. Is there any other way to evaluate this integral as a function of the parameters and Z? [/B]
