Using

x = z-1

and

z = 2 tan Θ

I got

∫ ln (2tan Θ - 1) dΘ

but I'm not exactly sure what the next step may be. - Mar 4th 2008, 02:38 PMmr fantastic
No elementary primitive exists, so it has to be handled as a definite integral from the word go. That implies special teachniques for example contour integration.

So what we need to know is:

What sort of mathematics is this question contexted in? The answer to this question will suggest the technique to use. - Mar 4th 2008, 04:28 PMKrizalid
