    How would you go about integrating(really sorry if the "LaTex" is wrong.

    \int {\frac{\1}{\sqrt{\lnx}}}\,dx} ?

    Try using this piece of LaTeX code instead:
    \int \frac{1}{\sqrt{ln x}} \ dx

    \int \frac{1}{\sqrt{ln x}} \ dx

    It can't be integrated. May be \int_0^1\frac1{\sqrt{-\ln x}}\,dx it's a good question.

    What is the diffenrece

    I recognize that \int_0^1\frac1{\sqrt{-\ln x}}\,dx = \Gamma(1/2) but why does that make a differnece?

    Just to make sure I am understood.

    \int_0^1\frac1{\sqrt{-\ln x}}\,dx= \Gamma(-1/2)
