No, there isn't. Do you understand that very few functions can be integrated as an elementary functions?

I know there is not any formula for this integral. But iam asking if there is sum that will not contain exponentional integral or gamma function in it.

It isn't a "crazy integral", but a "Sophomore's dream" ! To go beyond this jokes, have a look at the paper : "Sophomore's Dream Function" : http://www.scribd.com/JJacquelin/documents
