What makes you think it has a closed form?

Actually while solving one of the question , my mistake yielded this, so I checked it on wolfram alpha and it gave me an answer.

You didn't answer my question: is there a closed form?

- 2 years, 9 months ago

I couldn't find it , probability of finding its closed form is 1/2 ;).

Can you at least tell where/how you form this integral?

- 2 years, 9 months ago

The simplest form I can find is $$\displaystyle 2 \sum_{n=0}^\infty \dfrac{ (-1)^n (2n)!!}{(2n+1)(2n+1)!!}$$.
