can anyone give a result for this integration

∫cos(sin(θ)) dθ

unlimited or limited by any values may reduce any complexity

I highly doubt that there is a finite expression of that integral. It can be expressed by a series if certain integration limits are applied.

Hi,
If this integral has limits of 0 to pi it will be equal to pi*J(0,x) where J(0,x) is Bessel function of order zero.

cos(sinx)= cos(cos(90-x))=cos^2(90-x)

i.e ∫cos²(90-x)dx which can be ∫ed easily right.

Hi,
This is not correct because cos(cos(90-x) is not equal to cos^(90-x) whis is equal to cos(90-x)*cos(90-x).
It can only be integrated numerically unless it has limits of 0 to pi where it's Bessel function..

##### Member level 3 cos integrates to sin

right
cos(cos(x)) doesn't equal to cos^2(x)

See previous messages.

$\int_{0}^{\pi} \cos ( \sin \tau) \,\mathrm{d}\tau = \int_{0}^{\pi} \cos ( \cos \tau) \,\mathrm{d}\tau$

--> $\frac{1}{\pi} \int_{0}^{\pi} \cos ( \cos \tau) \,\mathrm{d}\tau = J_0(1) = 0.7651976865$
