There is none.

Why not divulge a little more of your top secret information and tell us why you are asking. Someone may have some usable input.

This topic comes up here frequently - you could do a search.

It is almost exactly the same as the average length in centimeters of a watupi mole rat in Zanzibar.

You can find the answer to your question if you go to the Mathematica site and look for integrals.

It helped me solve the integral I could not for ages.

I now know, given it is x thousands miles from me to the moon, how many yards of pink flannel it will take to sew pajamas with feet in them for a hippo weighing say a ton or two and adjusting for atmospheric pressure if the hippo is female and living in NJ or at 6,000 feet in the mountains.

See what I'm saying. A DIY Forum isn't the best place to ask a question like this. What does this have to do with DIY anyway?

What is a fixed fee percentage?
Should a 3 million dollar job have the same fixed fee percentage as a $3,000 job?

I've felt the same way for a time now. It could be about jerking us around. Maybe, and I am a romantic, people are honest and ask such things to know whether they should attempt things on their own?
