    Integral of cos(8x^2)??? multivariable calc

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    none

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So i reversed the order...

    and couldn't figure out how to integrate cos(8x^2). I looked at my trig identities, tried on my graphing calc, and even wolfram alpha gave me a strange answer that i cant use.

    Either i'm doing something wrong, or missing something obvious.

    Thanks

    oh yeah. in my work i should have wrote dydx instead of dxdy good catch. wow. maybe i can solve it now.

    lets see...


    wow... the answer was 0, after a page of work and a few hours of confusion
