But this is the problem I have. At 0 for instance:

So now I am with you.

their agreement is a sanity check.
It is always important to be able to have two or more independent
techniques available. The ability of the mind to see what it wants is
always with us. An idependent check helps prevent us being carried away
(resolution disagreements also helps develop technique and understanding
of the limitations of our methods).
Finally, it is also instructive to set about computing the integral numericaly
a few things becom clear that otherwise would remain hidden.
