# The integral which is irritating me

integral of tan(ax)*tan(bx)..............can we solve this general case.....i solved for some special cases like for angles 2x & 4x...............

Not possible to have an elementary close form. Think of $$\tan(A+B) = \frac{\tan A + \tan B}{1 - \tan A \tan B}$$. · 1 year, 8 months ago

i tried it..........rearranging......but no use......i also manipulated it differentely to use integration by parts...........also converted it to sin&cos......and used defactorization formulas....but its going too complicated.......and integral calculators are also not ansring....... · 1 year, 8 months ago

That's why I said there's no closed form. You need to use elliptic integrals to solve it. · 1 year, 8 months ago

i dont know about that............can you just give an idea or link..... · 1 year, 8 months ago
