### Re: Evaluate this integral

Maple, does it all for you  ( the latexing ). So does M and M.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

### Re: Evaluate this integral

I know about M&M, but my M doesn't alwaysgive it out correctly.

The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't.

### Re: Evaluate this integral

M did a really weird job and when I tried to correct it ad hoc many little mistakes were made.

### Re: Evaluate this integral

The integral is done correctly. It only took two substitutions and a partial fraction decomposition.
