    Gamma Beta Function

    Hey i've been set a question which i'm not sure whether through substitution your meant to make it into a gamma function or beta function. Please could some one give me some advice

    Question
    Evaluate:
    [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed] (x^p-1)/(1+x) dx
    Upper limit: \infty
    lower limit: 0

    Judging from some of your other posts, you're probably expected to solve this using contour integration (use an indented contour around the branch point z = 0, make your branch cut the positive real axis). I'm sure you have examples in your class notes or textbook.
