    i know \int{\left(\frac{1}{x^2 + 1}\right)\,dx}

    Simple. Notice this with simple U-Substitution.

    u+x^2+1

    du=2x dx

    \frac{1}{2}du=x dx

    Let u=x^2+1, then du=2x\Rightarrow\frac{1}{2}du=dx.

    Now substituting

    \int\frac{\frac{1}{2}}{u}du=\frac{1}{2}\int\frac{1  }{u}du=\frac{1}{2}\ln|u|+C.

    Now back substitute.
