Hi, I have a question regarding the integralfunction. Let's say I want to integrate a function from a to b, but without the left border. Like if I have f(x)=1/(x-1), and I want to integrate f from 1 to 10, but at 1, there is a definition gap. Sorry for my bad english, I tried my best ;) Thanks in advance and best regards

Calculate the next representable number and use it.
negative values, next larger value is
typecast(typecast(Value,'uint64') - 1 ,'double')
negative values, next smaller value is
typecast(typecast(Value,'uint64') + 1 ,'double')
positive values, next larger value is
typecast(typecast(Value,'uint64') + 1 ,'double')
positive values, next smaller value is
typecast(typecast(Value,'uint64') - 1 ,'double')
I tried with using multiplications and divisions with 1+eps and 1-eps but I ran into some problems due to round-off, and was having to start to use expressions like mean([v,v/(1+eps)]) . It was easier to be certain by switching representations.
