 I am trying to numerically integrate the following double integral in MATHEMATICA. This question has also been asked at Mathematica Stackexchange where $Im$ is the imaginary part of the expression, $i$ is the imaginary number, $x$ and $y$ are variables while $a$, $b$, $c$ and $Q$ are constants greater than $0$.Here is my attempt to solve this. a = 3 b = 0.0137 c = 0.0023 Q = 6 NIntegrate[Im[Exp[-I x c + b (i x y/(y^a - I x))]]/x, {x, 0, \[Infinity]}, {y, 0, Q}, AccuracyGoal -> 10] Is this the correct way of applying numerical integration with more than one variable? I am getting an error when I run this expression which reads as "evaluated to non-numerical values for all sampling points in the \region with boundaries {{[Infinity],0.},{0,6}}.Can anyone please guide me to correct the implementation of the expression given above.

 exp should be Exp and i should be I. Mathematica is case sensitive. Also make sure there is a space between two variables which are being multiplied. Answer

 Thank you for your response, I have incorporated the changes recommended. However, I still am not getting an error when I run this script which reads as "evaluated to non-numerical values for all sampling points in the \region with boundaries {{[Infinity],0.},{0,6}}. a = 3 b = 0.0137 c = 0.0023 Q = 6 NIntegrate[ Im[Exp[-I x c + b (I x y/(y^a - I x))]]/x, {x, 0, \[Infinity]}, {y, 0, Q}, AccuracyGoal -> 10] Answer

 With the code change above, I do not get the non-numerical error. However, the NIntegrate reports the integral as not converging. Dealing with convergence of multidimensional integrals is tricky. It could be that the integrand is oscillatory or contains singularities, or that it in fact does not converge. Answer

 When you simultaneously cross-post the same question (https://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/229514/numerical-integration-of-double-integral-with-two-variables), you should mention that in both posts. Answer

 Since x and y are Real, ComplexExpand may be able to help a=3;b=0.0137;c=0.0023;Q=6; NIntegrate[ComplexExpand[Im[Exp[-I x c+b (I x y/(y^a-I x))]]/x], {x,0,Infinity},{y,0,Q},AccuracyGoal->10] returns  -8.79547 but warns it was not able to obtain 10 digits of accuracy near x==0.Dividing the integral into two parts a=3;b=0.0137;c=0.0023;Q=6; NIntegrate[ComplexExpand[Im[Exp[-I x c+b(I x y/(y^a-I x))]]/x],{x,1/10,Infinity},{y,0,Q},AccuracyGoal->10]+ NIntegrate[Im[Exp[-I x c+b(I x y/(y^a-I x))]]/x,{x,0,1/10},{y,0,Q},AccuracyGoal->10] returns -8.79548+0. I with no warning, but I would study the accuracy of that carefully Answer

 Bill, That is very nice. I will remember that! Answer
