### Re: A nice integral

where w is the complex number
.

and you can integrate normally.

NB: Although w is complex, you can integrate as if you were doing normal real integration.

Hi Yusuke00

The first can also be solved using x^4+x^2+1=(x^2-x+1)(x^2+x+1) without complex numbers.

For the second one, I am getting

Did you test that second answer?

f is integrable because it is piecewise continuous (except at the right-hand end point), i.e. it is continuous over the subintervals [0, 1), [1, 2), and [2, 3). (It doesnt matter if its not continuous at an end point.)

Hi;

When you differentiate back, do you get the same function? I do not.

Oh, sorry, I read it as 1/sqrt(...). That makes it different, sorry.
