* What are F1() and F2()? Do they depend on anything else than 'x'? 
Maybe you meant Fi() and Fj(). In that case, can you benefit of a 
symmetry property?
* It's likely that all the computing time is in the "integrate" 
operation (check it with a profiler? %prun under ipython for example). 
In this situation, there's no improvement possible, apart from using a 
simpler function than integrate() that might be vectorized (this depends 
on the definition of Fi())
