Abstract : The report supplements the work of 'The Problem of Integration in Finite Terms,' (AD651 587) by modifying the results there so that they apply to elementary functions built up with real operations as sin, 1/tan, cosh, etc. It is shown that if a function is given to us in a real form, its elementary integral, if it exists, must also be expressible in a real form, i.e., without the use of complex numbers. Also, shown is the use of the algorithm of section 3 of the aforementioned paper to integrate real elementary functions. (Author)
