Following @Pi Han Goh 's hint:

Let \(u = \ln x \implies du = \dfrac 1x dx\), so our integral becomes

\[\displaystyle \int \cos( \ln x ) \,dx = \int e^u \cos(u) \,du \]

Integrating by parts twice gives

\[\begin{align} \int e^u \cos(u) \,du &= \cos u \int e^u \,du - {\large \int} \left( \dfrac{d}{du} \cos(u) \right) \left( \int e^u \,du \right) \,du \\ &= e^u \cos u + \int e^u \sin u \,du \\ &= e^u \cos u + \sin u \int e^u \,du - {\large \int} \left( \dfrac{d}{du} \sin(u) \right) \left( \int e^u \,du \right) \,du \\ &= e^u \cos u + e^u \sin u - \int e^u \cos u \,du \end{align} \]

\(\therefore \displaystyle 2 \int e^u \cos u \,du = e^u \left( \cos u + \sin u \right) \\ \implies \displaystyle \int e^u \cos u \,du = \dfrac{e^u \left( \cos u + \sin u \right)}{2} + C \)

Thus in our original integration, replacing \(u\) by \(\ln x \), we get

\[\displaystyle \int \cos ( \ln x ) \,dx = \dfrac{x}{2} \left( \cos (\ln x) + \sin (\ln x) \right) + C \]

Great work! You can simplify your work if you apply one off the integration tricks, namely:

\[ \int e^x (f(x) + f'(x)) \, dx = e^x f(x) + C . \]

What have you tried? Where are you stuck on?

Hint: Let \( y = \ln x\), then integration by parts.
