    Integration Help

    Hi,

    Can we arrive at a closed form solution to the following integral?

    (Phi(x)/(1-a*Phi(x))^2)dx

    limits of integration are from 0 to 1 and 'a' is a constant.
    Phi(x) is a function of x and is equal to 6*x^2-4*x^3+x^4.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    I suspect that this is not doable in closed from in terms of elementary functions, certainly QuickMath does not like it.
