    going with \[t=\log x\]\[\displaystyle \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} \dfrac{t^2e^t}{1+ e^{2t}} \text{d}t=\int_{-\infty}^{0} \dfrac{t^2e^t}{1+ e^{2t}} \text{d}t+\int_{0}^{\infty} \dfrac{t^2e^t}{1+ e^{2t}} \text{d}t\]first one for example\[\int_{-\infty}^{0} \dfrac{t^2e^t}{1+ e^{2t}} \text{d}t=\int_{-\infty}^{0} t^2e^t \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(-1)^ne^{2nt} \text{d}t= \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} (-1)^n\int_{-\infty}^{0} t^2e^te^{2nt} \text{d}t\\=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} (-1)^n \frac{2}{(2n+1)^3}\]

    the series looks like Fourier expansion.

    you made things a bit more complicated http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=sum [1%2F%282n%2B1%29^3%2C+{n%2C+0%2C+Infinity}]

    No not really ,,, this is nice ... and interesting http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=sum [%28-1%29^n%2F%282n%2B1%29^3%2C+{n%2C+1%2C+Infnity}]

    tried ... but stuck. I need picture of contour .... that t^2 term is bugging me badly http://openstudy.com/users/experimentx#/updates/50476f64e4b0c3bb09860ba6
