Thanks. Now I'm getting 2 as the answer.

Can anyone confirm that? - Apr 29th 2010, 09:57 AMFailure
No, I'm sorry but I get the answer 2. Quite possibly I am mistaken, therefore let me give you some of the my steps:

where I have used Landau's little-o. Now this last expression seems to have the limit 2i, for , and the imaginary part of this would be 2.

P.S: I have confirmed that a numeric approximation quite rapidly converges to this solution. - Apr 29th 2010, 12:12 PMOpalg
Another way of looking at this problem is that it consists of a Riemann sum converging to the integral .
