Derive the integration formula

By using the residue theorem, I integrated the function from to , I can only obtain the result , which means my answer is .

I couldnt find my mistake.Thank you.

The function you have to integrate is even, so the integral on is two times the integral on .

Thank you for your reply.

Yes i did it (divided by 2)and still get as answer, but not - Dec 16th 2011, 08:23 AMgirdavRe: Improper integral
Did you wrote the exponentials in terms of ?

Yes, by integrating and compare the real part of both sides

Another way: denote , then . Using the substitution we get (Dirichlet's integral) . So, . For we get .

Then,

**@fareastmovement**: Show your complete work by the method of residues (of course if you want) and we can check it.

Edited: Method not valid, see the posts below.

Not for all values of but of course the method I used is not valid. Reviewing the situation I find the explanation: in a foolish way my mind thought about to instead of to and curiously at the end I made the substitution . A complete disaster. :)

Fubini's theorem is not satsified. So to justify changing the order of integration, let's write the double integral more formally as a limit.

Since the Sine Integral is bounded above by 2, we can use the Dominated Convergence Theorem to justify bringing the limit inside of the integral.
