Hi;

I do not think there are closed forms for either of those. But if you could put some bounds on some of the constants an asymptotic form might be possible.

There actually is closed form, but through a different integration.

A different integration?

I have found a way to integrate this directly, but it is very tricky.

I doubt that.

I would say it is unlikely to but the whole question could be answered by posting the solution. Then it can be checked.

Hi;

That is not his integral.

But even if it were, that is not in closed form.

It is not his integral, but his can be manipulated into that one with substitutions and manipulations. The point is that Alpha says there's no closed form...

Hi;

Have you looked at the integral you sent to Alpha in post #8?

Then you know it is not and can never be his integral.

Brings us back to post #7. The fact that both M's can not do the integral does mean there is a high probability that it is intractable. But they are not infallible, so I think if George would post his answer the whole thing can resolved quickly.

Do you think some progress can be made using DUIT?

I have not tried but it sure does respond well to numerical integration for any T.

Sorry guys, I made a mistake, the question should be:

Hi George,Y;

That does not change much.

Yes, I think it is time to show your solution. I am willing to bet 21% of my bankroll, a whopping $1.16 that the solution is wrong.

After this change of variable, I think now the question is easier.
