I figure out a way to evaluate an integral with an antiderivative with elementary functions which had previously only been defined by an anitderivative that was not an elementary function. Everything checks outs. I used 3 regular substitutions and a trigonometric substitution and I just have to go back and insert the original variables. Although the antiderivative maybe somewhat involved it will certainly be elementary.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I only did some algebraic manipulations and and used an initial substitution, and proceeded from there. I didn't discover a new method yet the antiderirvate was thought to be impossible to express in elementary functions and if I can proof that it can, how big of deal would that be? Before I show my results, I want to make sure I get credit for my work so no one can steal the idea as their own.

How does one get proper recognition for a discovery such as this?
