And of course it doesn't become easier to find a primitive function which makes any sense when the dimension of the integral increases even more.
    Yes you are right it was a typo
    As I had some integrals that in my computer can not be calculated (not linear, multivariate polynomials)... I thought might be easier to use some scrap paper and hard-code the results inside my code...
    Then I can convert the integrals into simple functions of the boundaries.
    You can check below what I mean

    In your case it seems like the function F(x, y) (taken from my example) is = (x^2*y^2)/4. Then you insert the limits like I did in my example to get the same expression as you have on the bottom of your paper.

    This was just a toy-model : My equations are bivariate polynomials of order >2... and thus I think I should try to convert them into F(a,b,c,d) as me and you show in our examples. Then I do not need to run any integrate calculation using R or Matlab as I only do have simple functions that I need to call with the right arguments.
