The present paper uses the mathematical software Maple for the auxiliary tool to study four types of definite integrals. The closed forms of these definite integrals can be obtained mainly using Poisson integral formula. On the other hand, we propose two examples to do calculation practically. The research method adopted in this study is to find solutions through manual calculations and verify the answers using Maple.

### 1. Introduction

The computer algebra system (CAS) has been widely employed in mathematical and scientific studies. The rapid computations and the visually appealing graphical interface of the program render creative research possible. Maple possesses significance among mathematical calculation systems and can be considered a leading tool in the CAS field. The superiority of Maple lies in its simple instructions and ease of use, which enable beginners to learn the operating techniques in a short period. In addition, through the numerical and symbolic computations performed by Maple, the logic of thinking can be converted into a series of instructions. The computation results of Maple can be used to modify our previous thinking directions, thereby forming direct and constructive feedback that can aid in improving understanding of problems and cultivating research interests.

The closed forms of these definite integrals can be obtained mainly using Poisson integral formula; these are the major results of this paper (i.e., Theorems 1 and 2). Adams et al. ^{[1]}, Nyblom ^{[2]}, and Oster ^{[3]} provided some techniques to solve the integral problems. Yu [4-29]^{[4]}, Yu and B. -H. Chen ^{[30]}, and T. -J. Chen and Yu ^{[31, 32, 33]} used complex power series method, integration term by term theorem, differentiation with respect to a parameter, Parseval’s theorem, and generalized Cauchy integral formula to solve some types of integrals. In this paper, some examples are used to demonstrate the proposed calculations, and the manual calculations are verified using Maple.

### 4. Conclusion

In this study, we mainly use Poisson integral formula to solve some definite integrals. In fact, the applications of this formula are extensive, and can be used to easily solve many difficult problems; we endeavor to conduct further studies on related applications. In addition, Maple also plays a vital assistive role in problem-solving. In the future, we will extend the research topic to other calculus and engineering mathematics problems and use Maple to verify our answers. These results will be used as teaching materials for Maple on education and research to enhance the connotations of calculus and engineering mathematics.
