It appears to be hypergeometric. I ran it through Maple and it gave me.

Hi,
Could somebody please help me in getting a closed form expression for integrating the following expression:
(1+(x^m))^n
limits of integration are from 0 to 1. Integration is to be done with respect to x and m and n are positive real numbers.
Is it to do with the incomplete beta function, but the upper limit is coming out to be -1, which should lie in the interval 0 to 1.
Thanks in anticipation.
