Maple Numerical Integration of a 2-variable function in Matlab with respect to 1 variable

  1. Jul 31, 2011 #1
    Hey guys,

    I have this function:

    f(r,z) = r*(1 + g(r,z))

    The function g(r,z) is a modification of the student t-distribution in z, where the degrees of freedom depend continuously on r.

    I would like to integrate this function f(r,z) from 0 to R with respect to r.

    Unfortunately Maple could not find the integral, so I would like to do this numerically in MATLAB.

    I have no clue where to start though. I've integrated a function of one variable in MATLAB before, but only with constant limits.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
