numeric integration

Stefan Karrmann-2
Dear all,

I'm not able to do numeric integrations. Even simple integrals give no
results. Therefore I press Ctrl-C after minutes to howers.

Using NAG is in no way better, e.g.:

Any hints why this does not work as described in the axiom documentation
(bookvol0, page 1019)? I've found nothing to numeric integration or
INTPACK in archive of the mailing list.

Thanks for any hints.
