Homework Help: Integral with bisquare function

  1. Jul 8, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    integral:
    [tex]\int\sqrt{ax^4+bx^2+c}\mbox{d}x[/tex]
    normally its elliptic type but here its bisquare function - any ideas?

    I'm pretty sure that it's still elliptic - so not much chance of a closed form solution. Out of curiousity, why did you post this in the precalculus forum?

    Because it's calculus - an integral and all.
