By the Binomial Theorem:

Now prove that:

Another way: for all naturals n

Thus:

Then: - May 28th 2008, 09:51 AMThePerfectHacker
Another way. ( is unit circle).

Thus,

Geometric series, .

Now use residue theorem and this integral calculates to . - May 28th 2008, 10:22 AMMoo

let

Note that:

Thus: let we have:

Thus our solution satisfies the differential equation: which is quite easy to solve (we define )
