    Lightbulb Where did I make my mistake? (Expnoential Integral)

    I'm not sure if I should have assumed the existance of such an h. Any insights appreciated. Been looking at this integral for a while.... I know it's not supposed to have a solution other than a series or "Ei(x)" but I just can't help myself

    You need it make it clearer what properties you are assuming for h. (They are almost certainly inconsistent)
