## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi - I have just started 'Computational Physics' by Koonin & Meredith, - through distance learning.

Exercise 1.3 needs a program to evaluate an integral - I'm finding myself kinda rusty on integrals. The hint says - split range of integration into parts, use different change of variable in each part... but I've spent most of a day trying different things (I suspect a trig substitution), so would appreciate a strong hint here - the actual exercise is to write the program :) Equation is ∫(t

Thanks

^{-2/3})(1-t)^{-1/3}dt between 0 and 1.Thanks
