    A nice integral

    I have a problem when it comes to calculate the next integral:

     \int_{-\infty}^\infty\frac{1}{(x+\tau)^k}e^{-2\pi ixn} dx where n\in\mathbb{Z}, Im(\tau)>0.

    Any idea? Thanks.

    Look up (or calculate) the Fourier Transform of \frac{1}{x^k}. Then apply (or prove and then apply) the shift theorem.
