That could account for some of the differences.

I can plot that integrand but I do not understand the plot that I can see.

What do you see?

I've tried plotting stuff and I get an empty graph.

Hold on I will upload some images.

Might be easier to give the commands.

```
RegionPlot[((x^2 + y^2)^(-1/2)) (((100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2)^(-1/2))*
BesselJ[1, (x^2 + y^2)^(1/2)]*BesselJ[1, (((100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2)^(1/2))] > 0, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10}]
```

```
RegionPlot[((x^2 + y^2)^(-1/2)) (((100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2)^(-1/2))*
BesselJ[1, (x^2 + y^2)^(1/2)]*BesselJ[1, (((100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2)^(1/2))] < 0, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10}]
```

Thanks for the code. Those plots seem weird, but form an intriguing pattern.

I have no idea what that means except it seems to indicate that integrand is sometimes positive and sometimes not.

No responses yet on MO. Might be worth asking the same question on MathSE.

I do not know how the entire world feels about that but I generally avoid doing that.

It is either that or set up a bounty. (Or just solve it myself, of course.)

Hi;

Bounties do not really make anyone smarter than they were before. Still, that is a possibility. How much will you offer?

I'd offer the minimum if I were offering a bounty. But it might also be worth contacting my supervisor -- I haven't heard from him yet though (I sent him my proof on Thursday, but he's currently away so will probably not be able to get back to me for a while).

What place will you post the bounty?

Maybe MathSE, because there are more people on there and I have 318 rep to spare there. On MO I only have 116.

There are pros and cons. The people on the MathSE that could answer already have gazillions of rep points. A bounty may not interest them. The ones that might answer attracted by the bounty are more unknown.
