Ok I owe it at least that much...

Now using integration by parts on the second and standard techniques on the first we obtain the antiderivative

O...and just because I know you love it

Integrating we get

That was obviously a stupid joke^...me attempting to be funny - May 9th 2008, 06:27 PMKrizalid
Partial integration is involved. Find another solution which does not involve integration by parts.

Let:

Then:

Summing the expressions above :

And:
