Obviously, most elementary functions do not have elementary functions as integrals. For instance, the integral of e^-(x^2) is not an elementary function even though its integrand is. My question is, what is the smallest set of functions which includes the set of elementary function and is closed under integration?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
