$$\int_{3}^{5}\tan (\sin \left ( x \right )+\ln \left ( \left | x \right | \right ))dx$$

Home returns 2.067...
CAS loops forever on emulator and freezes the physical device.

Edit: Epsilon was super small, like 1e-12 which is the default value. I tried to change Epsilon to 0.01 and got a message "Restoring epsilon to 1e-6 from 0.01". Loops again...

Just taking the indefinite integral of $$\int \tan \left ( \sin \left ( x \right ) \right ) dx$$ produces a result that is 122,286 characters long!

integrate((-5*sin(x)+6*e^(cos(x)*((cos(x))²-(sin(x))²-1)/((cos(x))²+(sin(x))²)+sin(x)*2*cos(x)*sin(x)/((cos(x))²+(sin(x))²))*sin(

+(sin(x))²)))²-216*(cos(x))²*(sin(x))²+132*cos(x)^4+132*sin(x)^4+24*(cos(x))²-24*(sin(x))²+2),x)

Impressive if the result is correct.

It does not have an antiderivative that can be expressed with elementary function therefore you must do numeric integration using approx boundaries. I probably should add a check in the autosimplification function, if you set it to none you get the unevaluated "exact" answers without problems.

Hi Parisse, it was indeed my intention to look for an approximation. How do you do "an integration using approx boudaries"? Do you mean Home version?

He means that you should specify real values for the limits of integration:

$$\int_{3.0}^{5.0}\tan (\sin \left ( x \right )+\ln \left ( \left | x \right | \right ))dx$$

This gives the same approximation you get in Home mode (2.06725680644).

I get the same results here, when using approximate (real) boundaries.
However the time to compute the same result is quite different between Home and CAS environments:
