## [Axiom-developer] [#6 wrong integration result] {|{\overline {\ } == Gam

It is possible to convert this peculiar monogram to \Gamma for
display but I think the problem is more fundamental. Clearly AXIOM
does not have a consistent and complete representation of the Gamma
function. I think integrate should at least return a Gamma that can
be converted to Float or something of type Expression Integer like
sqrt(%pi)/4. But it seems that the current Gamma function always
agressively returns a DoubleFloat value. This doesn't seem very
useful to me for symbolic computations.
