I was wondering, are there any other integration methods besides, substitution (incuding trig), partial fraction, and differentiation by parts?
thanks

1)There is infinite series expansions.
2)There are complex integration (imaginary numbers) which simplify some real integration.
3)There are Elliptic Integrals.

Slightly toung in cheek: There is always the Risch Algorithm
I heard of Risch Algorithm before, but I was curious is is possible for a person to do the entire algorithm in efficient amount of time?
I don't know the detail well enough to say, but as packages like Mathematica
and Maple generally only partially implement it I suspect in many cases it is
nowhere as efficient as other methods.
