TuringTest Group Title

Fun integral that seems to have gotten deleted, so I'm posting it again.\[\int_0^\pi\frac{x\sin x}{1+\cos^2x}dx\]

    @No-data this is from the cinvestav exam, and it was one I could remember how to do. @mukushla perhaps you wanna have a try?

    @TuringTest i might have it... although i might well have made a mistake. i have it coming out as a periodic integral after a substitution

    \[u = cosx \]\[\frac{du}{dx} = -sinx\]\[dx = \frac{du}{-sinx}\] let our integral = I \[I = - \int\limits^{-1}_{1} \frac{\cos^{-1}u}{1+u^2} du\]\[I = \int\limits^{1}_{-1} \frac{\cos^{-1}u}{1+u^2} du\]\[f'(u) = \frac{1}{1+u^2} , g(u) = \cos^{-1}(u)\]\[f(u) = \tan^{-1}u \text{ , }g'(u) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{1-u^2}}\] \[\int\limits{f' \times g } \text{ } du = f \times g - \int\limits{f \times g'} \text{ } du\] \[I = [\tan^{-1}(u) \times \cos^{-1}(u)]^{1}_{-1} - \int\limits{\frac{\tan^{-1}u}{\sqrt{1-u^2}}}du\]\[I = \frac{\pi^2}{4} - \int\limits{\frac{\tan^{-1}u}{\sqrt{1-u^2}}}du\] \[ \int\limits{\frac{\tan^{-1}u}{\sqrt{1-u^2}}}du = [\tan^{-1}u \times \cos^{-1}]^{1}_{-1} - \int\limits{\frac{\cos^{-1}u}{1+u^2}du}\] therefore \[I = \frac{\pi^2}{4} - I\]\[I= \frac{\pi^2}{8}\] if this is completely wrong my excuse is tiredness!

    you have it right up until \[\int{\tan^{-1}u\over\sqrt{1-u^2}}du\]though you did it very differently than me there is a trick to this integral, would you like a hint?

    I personally think you over-complicated things by leaving them in terms of u by the way, so it took me a while to decipher your work, but it is correct :)

    the integration by parts was correct this setup for the integral is correct, though it looks much differently than mine as you left it in terms of u and I kept mine in x
