Wrong integration

Hello, Andrey,

I've found a somewhat dangerous bug:


As you can see in the screenshot, the calculation of integrals with big resulting numbers gave a wrong result. (Scilab gave the same result as my Casio fx-991EX calculator, but in engineering notation).

I'm not sure if I set up the new issue correctly, sorry if there were any mistakes.

Best Regards,

This depends on the accuracy of the integration. You heve to setup it under Tools > Options... > Calculation > Integrals: accuracy

Using an higher precison than the default (e.g. 1000 instead of 100), you can archieve a better result.

If you share the document through different machines, I suggest to make an annotation at the beginning of the document to remember the user who run the worksheet to setup properly this property (this is a good practice in general, you may change this property in other documents, have something to remember this dependancy is always a good thing).
