Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\large \int\limits_{0}^{\infty} \frac{ \ln (x) }{ x² + a² } dx\\ \large x=atan\theta, dx= a sec^2\theta d\theta,\theta =0 \: to \:\pi/2 \\\large \int \limits_{0}^{\pi/2}ln(a tan \theta)(d\theta/a)=I \\\large I=\int \limits_{0}^{\pi/2}ln(a tan (0+\pi/2\theta)(d\theta/a)\\ \large I=\int \limits_{0}^{\pi/2}ln(a cot \theta)(d\theta/a) \\ \large 2I=\int \limits_{0}^{\pi/2}ln(a tan \theta)(d\theta/a)+\int \limits_{0}^{\pi/2}ln(a cot \theta)(d\theta/a) \\\large 2I=\int \limits_{0}^{\pi/2}ln(a^2)(d\theta/a)\\ \large I=\frac{\pi lna}{2a}\) getting pi/2a (ln a)...hope i did not do any mistake somewhere.....
