# Math Help - Double integral

1. ## Double integral

Evaluate

$\int_0^1\int_0^1\frac{dx\,dy}{\ln^{3/2}\left(\dfrac1{xy}\right)}$

2. For the inner integral, substitute $u=xy,$

$\int_0^1 {\int_0^1 {\frac{{dx\,dy}}
{{\Big[ { - \ln (xy)} \Big]^{3/2} }}} } = \int_0^1 {\int_0^y {\frac{{du\,dy}}
{{y\left( { - \ln u} \right)^{3/2} }}} } = \int_0^1 {\int_u^1 {\frac{{dy\,du}}
{{y\left( { - \ln u} \right)^{3/2} }}} } .$

So

$\int_0^1 {\int_0^1 {\frac{{dx\,dy}}
{{\Big[ { - \ln (xy)} \Big]^{3/2} }}} } = \int_0^1 {\frac{{ - \ln u}}
{{\left( { - \ln u} \right)^{3/2} }}\,du} = \int_0^1 {\frac{1}
{{\sqrt { - \ln u} }}\,du} = \sqrt \pi .$

3. i don't think it works because that function is not defined for all x and y in $[0,1]$.

for exaomple when $x=y=1$ we have

$\frac{1}{(\log{1})^{\frac{3}{2}}}$

$= \frac{1}{0}$

4. It is okay to do this. It is an improper integral.
