    horrible integrel

    Hi, I am making a model and need to take the integral of a rather disgusting function, I was wondering if anyone had am idea of how to solve it, if its possible to!

    the function is 1 / tan (90 + Vt + at 2 )

    I need to integrate over t, a and V are constants, and limits 0 to T.

    Any ideas ? And sorry if I put this in the wrong section, I wasn't sure where it belonged

    Thanks
    Ed

    Wolfram says no standard antiderivative exists ...

    integral of 1/tan(at^2 + bt + c) - Wolfram|Alpha

    ... if it's a definite integral, its value can be estimated numerically.
