    Hi, I'm looking for an ONLINE table of primitives. Does anybody know of a good website?

    Thanks

    Or for now, does anybody know what this integral is

    [tex]
    \int \frac{sinx}{\sqrt{1 + 3sin^2x}}dx
    [/tex]

    ?

    Let u = cos(x)

    ?!

    That's not it. We're still stuck with the square root.

    It is indeed "it".

    If u = cos(x), then u^2 = cos^2(x) = 1 - sin^2(x) (etc)... The "new" integral can be handled with an inverse trigonometric function.

    That's genius! Thanks both of you!

    I'm still interested in a table of primitive though ;)
