This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

First look remind me of $\frac{\beta'(a,b)}{4}$ at $a = -1/4, b = -3/2$. But then there's that $x$ which reminds me of this and I think it is essentially the same problem. But since I've not solved that problem, I can only help you until here. There maybe solvers of that problem out there and they can surely help.

@Tanishq Varshney This seems to involve Complex Contour Integration. Unfortunately I don't know Contour Integration.
@Kartik Sharma Please could you help?

I'll try it though I don't know if I can get an answer.

Are you sure it has a closed form? If yes, what makes you say that?

I don't think it involves contour integration. It might be involving but then it is not that smooth to notice that easily.

Ok guys it was inspired from this

Closed form has been posted on math-stack exchange, I will post the link soon.

I think that link will give a hint of how to do your problem.
