How to integrate cos^4x

How to integrate cos^4x

Indefinite integral
integral cos^4(x) dx = 1/32 (12 x + 8 sin(2 x) + sin(4 x)) + constant
Expanded form of the integral
(3 x)/8 + 1/4 sin(2 x) + 1/32 sin(4 x) + constant
Series expansion of the integral at x=0
x – (2 x^3)/3 + x^5/3 + O(x^6)
(Taylor series)
Definite integral over a half-period
integral_0^pi cos^4(x) dx = (3 pi)/8~~1.1781
Definite integral over a period
integral_0^(2 pi) cos^4(x) dx = (3 pi)/4~~2.35619
Definite integral mean square
